Research Reveals Biological Design in the Sensing and Manipulation of Force
The laws of physics constrain what can happen, but not how it happens. Biological designs show expertise in the use of forces for function.
Cells Reach Out and Touch, Providing Evidence of Foresight and Design
Cells are equipped with sensors that recognize touch and respond accordingly. They can even reach out to other cells with nanoscopic tunnels and share parts.
Molecular Machines Use Physics to Do Mechanical Work
Recent findings show cellular machinery using pushes, pulls, and even electrical forces to accomplish physical work.
