This image shows how cancer cells move over time. It is generated from a movie by overlaying all time points of the movie into one picture. The cells are shown in the yellow/green colors and the dark background displays the substrate the cells are migrating on. In the yellow/green colors we can see all the different shapes of the cancer cells and how their shape changes over time. With such a display we can also follow their migration path.
