Interfaces and phase suppression in biological systems

Roger Highmore
We consider how interfaces can influence the early stages of a new phase forming in an existing phase, e.g., diseased or cancerous cells attempting to form in a region of healthy cells. Interfaces can impede formation of new phases by at least two means: through the energetic cost of forming a new interface; and through the time needed to transport atoms and molecules across an interface and incorporate them into the new phase. In the...
