In living systems thermal motions become dominant at the nanometre scale, thus protein diffusion must play an important role in cells. But how can stochastic motions at the molecular scale add up to create the exquisite order observed at the cellular scale? I will present the case of Bicoid, a protein whose concentration acts as a postal code in the fly embryo, by letting cells know what is...
