Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNBI,volume 8248)


Cells have an ability to perceive and respond to their microenvironment. External stimuli activate internal signaling pathways that regulate the cell activity. Most signaling pathways function to transfer information from the cell surface to effector systems.
