Unlocking the Secrets of Life: Scientists Solve Century-Old Biological Mysteries With Active Matter Theory

Posted by in categories: biological, information science, mathematics, supercomputing

An open-source advanced supercomputer algorithm predicts the patterning and dynamics of living materials, allowing for the exploration of their behaviors across space and time.

Biological materials consist of individual components, including tiny motors that transform fuel into motion. This process creates patterns of movement, leading the material to shape itself through coherent flows driven by constant energy consumption. These perpetually driven materials are called “active matter.”

The mechanics of cells and tissues can be described by active matter theory, a scientific framework to understand the shape, flows, and form of living materials. The active matter theory consists of many challenging mathematical equations.
