Life sciences are among the most interesting fields of contemporary scientific research. The biological world has such a wide range of complexities that any attempt to present it in any depth would take us outside the scope of the present book. In the present chapter, we shall thus only refer to a few specific physical problems in the biological world. 
SPATIAL PATTERNS INDUCED BY RANDOM SWITCHING
TLDR
A mechanism whereby a random alternation of two dynamics each leading to a different homogeneous state can lead to complex ordered structures is proposed, based on the ideas of so-called paradoxical games.

With both antigens, hemolysin titer was, in general, reciprocally related to per cent transfer during the initial immunization, but transfer sometimes remained high at peak titer during the second and especially during the third immunization.
