Membranes and Active Gels — •Hans-Günther Döbereiner — Departments of Biology & Physics, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027, USA

During the last decade, Biological Physics has become a major research field. Especially, the fascinating physics of membranes continues to drive forward our quantitative understanding of cellular behavior. Giant vesicles [1] are an important tool to monitor the properties of biomembranes [2,3] and soft matter in general [4]. Recently, active gels have drawn a lot of attention. Combining the physics of polymers and molecular motors to model biological phenotype [5] will require new concepts. We propose to view cell spreading and migration as a sequence of dynamic phase transitions of active gels and their regulatory networks.
