BioSpace Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, March 5, 2009 Abstract The rise of the digital age in the last quarter of the 20th Century birthed a new medium for the 21st: the […]

Stephen M. Levin Ezekiel Biomechanics Group SMLevin@biotensegrity.com Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, February 26, 2009 Abstract Biologic material must be classified as “soft matter”, the same material category as colloids, foams and gels. The mechanics of foams and similar soft matter are different from the mechanics of solid, liquid and gases. They follow rigid […]

Stuart A. Newman New York Medical College Newman@NYMC.edu Presented in the Embryo Physics Course, January 29, 2009 Abstract This talk considers the role played by a core set of “dynamical patterning modules” (DPMs) in the origination, development and evolution of complex organisms. These consist of the products of a subset of the genes of what […]
