01What is a signal? : Mukund Thattai

  • What is a signal?
    In 1977 Howard Berg and Edward Purcell published their now-classic paper on the Physics of Chemoreception. In my lecture I will present the central result of that paper: there are fundamental limits about what a cell can learn about its environment using chemical signals. A small amount of mathematical background will be useful but I'll try to keep the discussion at a broad intuitive level.
