One of the most fundamental issues in biology is the nature of evolutionary transitions from single cell organisms to multicellular ones. Not surprisingly for microscopic life in a fluid environment, many of the processes involved are related to transport and locomotion, for efficient exchange of chemical species with the environment is one of the most basic features of life. In this talk I will describe recent experimental and theoretical work from my group on these issues that has highlighted some fundamental open problems in the nonequilibrium physics of self-organization.
