What is Life?
In searching for life in extraterrestrial space, it is essential to act based on an unequivocal definition of life. In the twentieth century, life was defined as cells that self-replicate,Expand
Communication as the Main Characteristic of Life
With an expertise in the philosophies of science and language, I turned my focus to the philosophy of biology and life sciences in the mid-1980s. I found it interesting that the results of theExpand
Cracking the code: a comparative approach to plant communication
ABSTRACT The linguistic behavior of humans is usually considered the point of reference for studying the origin and evolution of language. As commonly defined, language is a form of communicationExpand
Functional Nucleic Acids Under Unusual Conditions
This review will examine the progress of research on FNAs under conditions of low pH, high temperature, freezing conditions, and the inclusion of organic solvents and denaturants that are known to disrupt nucleic acid structures. Expand
Bacterial Origin and Reductive Evolution of the CPR Group.
It is found that CPR are bacterial microorganisms that have probably evolved in an Archaea-like manner via the early loss of key metabolic functions, which indicates that the current debate on the evolutionary relationships among superkingdoms is correct. Expand
Draft genomes and initial characteriaztion of siderophore producing pseudomonads isolated from mine dump and mine drainage
Researchers have identified siderophore biosynthesis gene clusters in beech wood hydrolysate as an alternative carbon source and found high and stable sidersophore production. Expand
Information, communication and music: Recognition of musical dissonance and consonance in a simple reservoir computing system
This work presents a simple reservoir computing system implemented on Multisim platform as a tool for classification of musical intervals according to their consonant or dissonant character, and the result closely resembled sensory dissonance curve. Expand
Morphological Computation and Learning to Learn In Natural Intelligent Systems And AI
What can the inspiration from computational nature at this stage of the development contribute to deep learning and how much models and experiments in machine learning can motivate, justify and lead research in neuroscience and cognitive science and to practical applications of artificial intelligence.

Natural Morphological Computation as Foundation of Learning to Learn in Humans, Other Living Organisms, and Intelligent Machines
The emerging contemporary natural philosophy provides a common ground for the integrative view of the natural, the artificial, and the human-social knowledge and practices. Learning process isExpand
Origin of DNA Repair in the RNA World
The early history of life on Earth likely included a stage in which life existed as self-replicating protocells with single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) genomes. In this RNA world, genome damage from aExpand

Diversity and Evolution of Type IV pili Systems in Archaea
A comprehensive census of T4P encoded in archaeal genomes is reported using sensitive methods for protein sequence comparison and suggests that at least one T 4P system was present in the last common ancestor of the extant archaea. Expand
Haloarchaea and the Formation of Gas Vesicles
The applications of gas vesicles include their use as an antigen presenter for viral or pathogen proteins, but also as a stable ultrasonic reporter for biomedical purposes. Expand
