On The Cover: Biomechanical measurements of cells. The scanning electron microscopic image showed that extracellular matrix (ECM) protein-coated superparamagnetic beads bound to mouse embryonic fibroblasts. Cellular stiffness and fluidity of vinculin knock-out and wild-type cells were determined by applying an external increasing force ramp ranging from 0.5 to 10 nN using magnetic tweezer microrheology. For details see the article by Mierke et al., pages 13121–13130....
