Using scanning electron microscopy, researchers at the University
of Saskatchewan are studying aggregating cells—colonies of
gonocytes in newborn testis that, when grown in culture, exhibit
various types of cytoplasmic extensions that assist the migration
toward each other, attributes crucial to their survival.
