How can we explain the fundamental paradox of living matter, which combines
stability and robustness of form with constant internal dynamics? It is not
only the genetic information contained in every cell, but also numerous
stochastic biomolecular processes that are at work in morphogenesis. In
addition, the shaping of an organism is driven by mechanical forces that
operate within and between cells, across tissues and organs. The dynamics of
morphogenesis is a self-organized process that emerges from biological control
and physical constraints at all scales. Its study is currently bringing
together a fast-growing interdisciplinary community that observes, analyses
and models living organisms.
