Onset of meso-scale turbulence in active nematics

Abstract:

Meso-scale turbulence is an innate phenomenon, distinct from inertial turbulence, that spontaneously occurs at low-Reynolds number in fluidized biological systems. This spatio-temporal disordered flow radically changes nutrient and molecular transport in living fluids and can strongly affect the collective behaviour in prominent biological processes, including biofilm formation, morphogenesis and cancer invasion. Despite its crucial role in such physiological processes, understanding meso-sca...
