Quantum Biology

World Science Festival 2012

The panel on "Quantum Biology and the Hidden Nature of Nature" at the World Science Festival last month was particularly memorable. Skip to 5:30 to hear John Hockenberry give an informative and humorous introduction to these strange bedfellows—biology and quantum mechanics. Paul Davies, Seth Lloyd, and Thorsten Ritz then join Hockenberry for a fascinating conversation. Can the spooky world of quantum physics explain bird navigation, photosynthesis, and even our delicate sense of smell? Clues are mounting that the rules governing the subatomic realm may play an unexpectedly pivotal role in the visible world. Join leading thinkers in the emerging field of quantum biology as they explore the hidden hand of quantum physics on the scales of everyday life.
