Abstract

Everywhere on earth life abounds. Species have been able to come up with solutions to “engineering problems” in innovative ways over and over again to advance into and survive in all kinds of environments, sometimes more constructing than discovering their very special ecological niches where one would not expect any. Species are made up of myriad individuals which in turn consist of one or many cells. Cells are responsive to external signals, allowing them to cope with changing conditions and perturbations, while in multicellular organisms cells autonomously “negotiate” division of labour among them. Naturally this adaptability and diversity has fascinated and continues to fascinate humans.
