Movement and the ability to divide are two fundamental traits of living cells. The origin of these abilities could rely on very simple physical mechanisms, which have been simulated by scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste in a study just published in Physical Review Letters. more
A team of physicists from SISSA and the Polytechnic University of Turin has developed and analysed a model that simulates the effect of migration on the genetic biodiversity of populations, and discovered that the effect is all but trivial. more
"De Rerum Natura" è il titolo del nuovo concorso fotografico promosso dal Laboratorio Interdisciplinare della SISSA. Un richiamo alla natura, ma anche alla scienza: è infatti anche il titolo del famoso poema di Lucrezio, dove lo stupore e la meraviglia per la natura si intrecciano allo sguardo analitico dello scienziato.

Universal syllables/ Some innate preferences shape the sound of words from birth Languages are learned, it's true, but are there also innate bases in the structure of language that precede experience? Linguists have noticed that, despite the huge variability of human languages, there are some preferences in the sound of words that can be found across languages. ... read more
