Speakers: Prof Ray Goldstein

Simple organisms like bacteria possess the ability to do all the functions of life while being but a single cell.
We, of course, have evolved to have many different types of cells specialised for various functions (nerves, muscle, eyes, etc.).
One of the most fascinating questions in evolutionary biology concerns what pressures led single cell organisms to evolve into multicellular ones, and to divide up life’s tasks among different cells.
This lecture will explain how concepts and experimental techniques from mathematics and physics can help us answer this question.
