Twisty Robots Reveal How Plant Roots Wind Through Soil

External News Details

Georgia Tech's Daniel Goldman gets credit here for the idea of using a certain plant root-mimicking robot for a study on molecular and mechanical strategies that roots have for navigating through soil. The School of Physics professor knew of the robot developed by UC-Santa Barbara's Elliott Hawkes, “and realized it would make a nice model of the real biological system,” Hawkes says. Goldman joined a team of Duke University researchers on the project.
