SCIENCE DAILY Scientists say they have found a fast way to manipulate a cell's cilia, the tiny, fingerlike protrusions that 'feel' and sense their microscopic environment. The experiments, performed in mouse cells, may advance scientists' efforts to not only understand how the nano-sized antennae work, but also how to repair them. 2 months
