Biological cells are able to generate intricate structures and respond to external stimuli, sculpting their membrane from within. Simplified biomimetic systems can aid in understanding the principles which govern these shape changes and elucidate the response of the cell membrane under strong deformations. Here, a combined experimental and simulation approach is used to identify the conditions under which different non-equilibrium shapes and distinct active shape fluctuations can be obtained by… Expand

Leveraging synthetic particles for communication: from passive to active systems.
TLDR
This review of recent endeavors for constructing communication with synthetic particles by revealing the principles underlying the communicative behaviors resembles the dynamic and out-of-equilibrium properties of communication in nature. Expand
The physics of active polymers and filaments.
TLDR
The theoretical models for tangentially and isotropically self-propelled or active-bath-driven polymers are presented, both in the presence and absence of hydrodynamic interactions, and the consequences for their conformational and dynamical properties are examined. Expand

TLDR
Three case studies in applying computational models that may give insight into native biological structures are presented, concerned with soluble proteins, the measurement of forces applied to a membrane and the forces between proteins in a lipid bilayer membrane. Expand
