Zusammenfassung
Microscopic self-organization phenomena inside a living cell should not represent merely a reduced copy of self-organization in macroscopic systems. A cell is populated by active protein machines that communicate via small molecules diffusing through the cytoplasm. Mutual synchronization of machine cycles can spontaneously develop in such networks - an effect which is similar to coherent laser generation. On the other hand, an interplay between reactions, diffusion and phase transitions in biological soft matter may lead to the formation of stationary or traveling nonequilibrium nanoscale structures.
