Understanding forces in the context of biology is essential as all cells in the human body are constantly subjected to mechanical forces and are often presented with situations where adaptations are critical for survival. Mechanical adaptations in response to forces have been studied mainly though visualization of changes in cytoskeletal structures and understanding the corresponding signaling pathways. These observations are informative in elucidating regulating proteins and cellular phenotype, but do not offer insights to ...
