Expanding bacterial colonies and growing tissues behave as soft driven glasses

Cited by: 0|Views1

Abstract:

We develop a minimal model to describe growing dense active matter such as biological tissues, bacterial colonies and biofilms, that are driven by a competition between particle division and steric repulsion. We provide a detailed numerical analysis of collective and single particle dynamics. We show that the microscopic dynamics can be...More
