One Day Symposium

on

Self-Organization in Biology

Concept Note:

The phenomenon of Self Organisation was discovered in physical/ non-living systems. Soon it was observed that the phenomenon is relevant in a large number of biological systems starting from molecular to physiological & ecological systems and behavioural sciences. While many theories are coming up to explain Self Organisation, a special attention is needed for conceptual development of this phenomenon in complex biological systems. The symposium aims at a discourse on conceptual aspects of Self Organisation in Biology.
