Open questions in Physics and Biology


How does our classical world emerge from the counterintuitive principles of quantum theory? Can we even be sure that the world doesn't 'go quantum' when no one is watching? Philip Ball talks to the theorists and experimentalists trying to find out.

Ball Philip, Quantum all the way, Nature Vol 453, 1 May 2008.

In this area will be reported the Q&A on frontier problems in Physics and Biology.

We need to start the discussion from a certain point. Google presents several issues of interest like the article of Rob Phillips and Stephen R. Quake - The Biological Frontier of Physics (here the pdf file). In this article the authors outline major areas that are amenable to the kinds of experiments and theories that physicists are used to: understanding the operational principles of molecular machines and assemblies, understanding the collective effects that give rise to the exquisite orchestration in space and time revealed by cellular life, and developing new ideas on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics that provide a suitable framework for understanding in vivo cellular processes.

An intriguing new Symposium called Reboxotica.

Remembering The Starlab

"Having now visited quite a number of labs in Europe, I can say that when Starlab closed we were very far ahead of many other European and US labs - in vision, culture, research, and outlook. Starlab was indeed one of a kind."
