Les Houches Winter school - Biology at different scales : an interplay between physics and biology- March 13-24, 2017

The school is aimed for PhD students and early-stage researchers. Participants learn how a biological problem can be tackled using an integrated approach, going from atomic resolution to the level of a whole organism level. The school also aims at showing how physics can contribute to model biological processes. Several topics are covered : cell and tissue morphogenesis, role of membranes at mesocopic and molecular scales : remodeling and transport processes, concepts and methods from physics applied to biology, state-of-the-art experimental approaches, links between cellular and structural biology. The concepts and methods was illustrated with two research fields, Plant morphogenesis from gene to flowers, and Exocytosis and morphology of the synapse.
This school, co-organized by R. Jahn, H. Nury, F. Parcy, E. Pebay-Peyroula, took place near Chamonix (Les Houches, France) in March 2017.
