This module introduces the probability of cell and molecule collisions in the context of understanding chemoreception. It is intended for an introductory biology audience.
Student Introduction: Chemoreception occurs when specific receptors in the cell membrane bind with diffusing chemicals in the surrounding medium. For example, bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella often navigate in response to chemical attractants or repellants.
