Turning Oscillations Into Opportunities:
"Individual freedom and social responsibility may sound like humanistic concepts, but an investigation of the genetic circuitry of bacteria suggests that even the simplest creatures can make difficult choices that strike a balance between selflessness and selfishness. The new study revealed how sophisticated genetic circuits allow an individual bacterium within a colony to act on its own while also ensuring that the colony pulls together in hard times. "
Multidisciplinary Research on Physics of "Living Systems" Earns Prestigious Prize
The 2013 Weizmann Prize in Exact Sciences
The members of the jury, Prof. Haim Cedar (chairman), Prof. Shlomo Havlin and Prof Ori Cheshnovsky, decided to award the 2013 Weizmann Prize in Exact Sciences to Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob and Prof. Shimon Yankielowicz.
"The Prize was given to Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob for his innovative application of physical methods to the study of biological communities such as bacterial colonies, neural networks and tumors. His investigations, marked by out-of-the-box thinking, played a major role in the establishment of a new research discipline."
