Active Matter: from 2D to 3D

During biofilm formation bacterial colonies change from 2D layers to 3D structures, and during gastrulation 2D layers of epithelial cells fold as an initial step to creating 3D tissues. I will discuss recent results that suggest that the ideas of active matter might be useful in helping to understand these changes of shape.
