Self-diffusion of biomolecules in solution.

It is shown that the proposed potential can qualitatively well describe the experimental data on the self-diffusion of biomolecules in solution.

Phase geometries of two-dimensional excitable waves govern self-organized morphodynamics of amoeboid cells

Morphology dynamics of randomly moving Dictyostelium discoideum cells can be characterized by the number, topology, and position of spatial phase singularities, i.e., points that represent organizing centers of rotating waves.

Topographical pathways guide chemical microswimmers

It is demonstrated that step-like submicrometre topographical features can be used as reliable docking and guiding platforms for chemically active spherical Janus colloids, indicating that the chemical activity and associated hydrodynamic interactions with the nearby topography are the main physical ingredients behind the observed behaviour.

An Active Poroelastic Model for Mechanochemical Patterns in Protoplasmic Droplets of Physarum polycephalum

A two-dimensional model for the contraction patterns observed in protoplasmic droplets of Physarum polycephalum is derived and analyzed, which reproduces a large variety of wave patterns, including traveling and standing waves, turbulent patterns, rotating spirals and antiphase oscillations.

From Clarkia to Escherichia and Janus: the physics of natural and synthetic active colloids

In these lectures, a pedagogical introduction to the physics of single-particle and collective properties of active colloids, focussing on self propulsion is given.
