Michel Milinkovitch tells us why the artificial separation of scientific disciplines can obstruct scientific discovery and how the integration of computer science, mathematical concepts and physical processes in the analysis of biological questions can improve our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms generating the awe-inspiring complexity and diversity of Life.
Michel Milinkovitch is professor of genetics, evolution and biophysics at the University of Geneva, member of the Institute of Genetics and Genomics in Geneva, group leader of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and head of the Evolutionary Developmental Genetics (Evo-Devo) lab that combines biology and physics to understand the mechanisms generating complexity and diversity in the living world.
