Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

Motility assays are two-dimensional arrays in which certain types of biofilaments are pushed along the surface in a direction given by the orientation of the the filament. The filaments interact with each other and with geometrical obstacles. We present a theoretical description for the resulting collective motion of the filaments. This rests on a suitable formalism for the directional re-orientation mechanism, that will be described in detail in this talk. We shall also discuss stochastic aspects of the velocity profile of individual filaments.
