It is shown that a system of cells which are attracted by chemotaxis to a signal released by themselves can aggregate (in the form of delta function concentrations). This aggregation is initiated by random fluctuations which occur naturally. When the signalling is cooperative, such an aggregation presents a characteristic streaming morphology, observed in some of the cellular slime moulds.
