Engineering chemotaxis with DREADDs

A cool application of DREADD technology is found in a nice paper from the Wendall Lim lab at UCSF.

This elegantly demonstrates how synthetic biology tools may be used to modulate cell motility (in this case chemotaxis) in the periphery.  It is likely that this approach will prove useful for all types of motile cells.
