Speakers: Prof Julia Yeomans

Active systems, from cells and bacteria to flocks of birds, create their own energy that they use to move and to control the complex processes needed for life. A goal of biophysicists to is construct the new theory needed to understand these living systems which operate far from equilibrium. To this end we are asking questions like: How do biomolecules find their way across crowded cells? How do birds, bacteria and cells self-organise into similar patterns?  Do tiny marine creatures stir the ocean?  This talk will attempt to answer some of these questions.
