    Strategies for fungal spore dispersal
    Fungi range from decomposers to symbionts, parasites and pathogens and are among the worst threats and at the same time the most fundamental components of many ecosystems. The fungi may lack legs or wings for locomotion, but they routinely translocate even across oceans by dispersing their spores, causing the (...)

    Active brownian motion in two dimensions
    We study the dynamics of a single active Brownian particle (ABP) in two dimensions. At late times, the particle undergoes boring ordinary diffusion. However, the signature of activity shows up at early or short times. At short times, the dynamics is highly anisotropic. We compute exactly the probability (...)
General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so prefer planning a talk for a broad audience. It is recommended to spend several slides on a general introduction, and to make at least the first half of the seminar understandable for non-specialists. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:15 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up the slideshow. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
