migration

any cyclical movements (usually annual) that occur during the life history of an animal at definite intervals, and always including a return trip from where they began. The exact derivation of the word is from the Latin ‘migrate’ meaning to go from one place to another, but biologically a return journey is part of the accepted definition of the term, the outward journey being termed EMIGRATION and the inward journey IMMIGRATION.

see leukocyte migration-inhibition factor, macrophage inhibition factor, migration inhibition test (below).
migration inhibition test
an in vitro test for detection of cell-mediated immunity (or delayed hypersensitivity) in which peritoneal exudate cells (lymphocytes and macrophages) are packed in capillary tubes and placed in a medium; if the medium contains an antigen to which the lymphocytes are primed, macrophage migration from the tubes is inhibited by lymphokines, particularly macrophage inhibiting factor, released by the antigen stimulated lymphocytes.

If you're a regular Techwatch reader however, you know that one of my mantras is "back it up" What this means is that those who perform regular backups might not find it necessary to purchase data migration tools because all of their data is stored on a drive--DVD, CD, etc, Sure, you'll still need to reinstall some programs, particularly if they didn't come with your new PC, but think of the time (and money) you save by performing regular automatic backups.
