The combination of a theoretical model of the living cell and membrane computing suggested a new variant of a computational model called conformons-P system based on membrane-enclosed compartments where conformon-like objects evolve. Some variants of such model are presented and their computational power is sketched.
One of the critical components of the mechanisms of cell communication and cell computing has been postulated to be space-and time-organized teleonomic (or goal-directed) shape changes of biopolymers that are driven by exergonic chemical reactions catalyzed by biopolymer shape changes themselves. The generalized Franck-Condon principle resolves the apparent… (More)
Conceptual models of the atom preceded the mathematical model of the hydrogen atom in physics in the second decade of the 20th century. The computer modeling of the living cell in the 21st century may follow a similar course of development. A conceptual model of the cell called the Bhopalator was formulated in the mid-1980s, along with its twin theories… (More)
In 1997, the author concluded that living cells use a molecular language (cellese) that is isomorphic with the human language (humanese) based on his finding that the former shared 10 out of the 13 design features of the latter. In 2012, the author postulated that cellese and humanese derived from a third language called the cosmic language (or cosmese) and… (More)
The first use of the merger of linguistics into the real of science was done by Sungchul Ji in his works with the linguistics of DNA. Cellular linguistics TM is when the cell speaks to other cells in a specific code that is measured by the amount of phonons and photons sent through the extracellular fluid matrix and the internal cellular matrix. This… (More)
