The interface of Biology and Physics is an exciting and rapidly developing frontier of science. This lecture will draw examples from the study of animal development and the study of evolution – two of the fundamental problems of Biology – to illustrate the sometimes unexpected ways in which concepts, ideas and approaches of Theoretical Physics come to fore in the quest to understand the rich world of biological phenomena.
