Comments "Dynamic processes in cellular biology span a broad range of velocities and scales. Some examples of this diversity are the speed of cell migration [140–170 µm/h for neural crest cells (BNID 111506)], telomere motion in yeast [~0.05 µm/sec (primary source)], fast calcium waves [10–50 µm/sec (BNID 111508)], red blood cell motion in the developing cardio-vascular system of rodents [1–10 mm/s (BNID 111509)], and the frequency of beating cilia [3–40 Hz (BNID 111510)."
