Emergence and Evolution of Biological Complexity From the origins of life to multicellularity Saturday Feb 4 –  Monday Feb 6, 2017 Dasheri auditorium, NCBS, Bangalore Biology, at all scales from molecular to cellular to populations, provides quintessential examples of complex adaptive systems. This meeting brings together experimentalists, theorists and philosophers to discuss the physical principles underlying the emergence of complexity in biological systems, and how it is shaped by cooperative dynamical behaviour and selective pressures. Speakers will probe events in the history of life on Earth which marked qualitative changes in the complexity of biological systems, such as the origin of life or the appearance of multicellularity, and also discuss our growing quantitative understanding of evolution at the molecular scale. Please note the deadline for Registration: December 15, 2016 – Foreign applicants who need a visa are urged to register as soon as possible to avoid last-minute stress! Organizers:  Clement…
