About the cover

March 2012 Volume 9 No 3

A simulated cell forms dynamic E-cadherin–mediated contact with a neighboring cell (the latter is not shown) over 60 minutes. The color code depicts relative concentrations of E-cadherin from lowest (blue) to highest (red). Morphological dynamics were simulated using a cellular Potts model; geometry and relative concentrations were exported from Simmune. Cover design by Erin Dewalt, based on images and simulations provided by Martin Meier-Schellersheim. Article p283
