The physics of living matter was explored in this second event: addressing current ideas surrounding active materials - such as cells and microorganisms - and systems, discussing how these systems naturally provide a testing ground for theories of non-equilibrium statistical physics, and how evolution finds solutions in hyper-astronomically large search spaces.
