If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ms Helen Gardner.

In systems as diverse as concentrated bacterial suspensions, colonial algae, and plants we find fluid flows driven by the collective action of individual motile components (flagella, molecular motors) which are sufficiently fast as to strongly dominate diffusion. I will summarize our recent experimental and theoretical work in this area, highlighting implications for intercellular communication and for aspects of evolutionary and developmental biology.
