From human beings to fruit flies, multicellular organisms depend for their survival on a precise series of actions at the cellular level. Every individual cell in the organism must sense and respond to external and internal signals and work in harmony with its neighbor cells in the organ or tissue. To accomplish this task, each cell possesses a system of molecular highways that allows it to respond appropriately to the environment.
