worth checking out

Biological cells utilize a variety of signaling processes to exchange information with each other and to ‘sense’ their environment. To understand how cells coordinate their behaviors through communication with each other, researchers all over the world have made big strides in ‘engineering’ cells and in recreating their communication networks in the laboratory. Until very recently, however, the focus has been on the design of artificial cells that function in isolation.
