Molecular biology explains function of molecules by their geometric and electronic structures which are mainly determined by utilization of quantum e ects in chemistry. However, further quantum e ects are not thought to play any significant role in the essential processes of life. On the contrary, consideration of quantum circuits/protocols and organic molecules as software and hardware of living systems that are co-optimized during evolution, may be useful to pass over the di culties raised by… 

Strange Stable Replicators Generated From Mumps Virus cDNA Clones

TLDR
The stability in repeated high multiplicity passage indicates that the constellation of mutations is placing the virus on a fitness peak from which it cannot escape.

Unusual, stable replicating viruses generated from mumps virus cDNA clones

TLDR
In reverse genetic experiments, recombinant mumps viruses that carry large numbers of mutations clustered in small parts of their genome are isolated, which are not caused by biased hyper-mutation and appear stable as no reversion occurred to the original consensus sequence.

Quantum algorithms and the genetic code

TLDR
It is proposed that enzymes play a crucial role in maintaining quantum coherence of the process and components of the DNA structure which implement Grover's algorithm are identified, and a physical scenario is presented for the execution of the quantum algorithm.

Necessity of Quantum Coherence to Account for the Spectrum of Time-Dependent Mutations Exhibited by Bacteriophage T4

TLDR
The transcriptase deciphers and executes genetic specificity instructions by implementing measurements on superposition proton states at *G–*C, G′–C′, and *A–*T sites in an interval Δt ≪ 10−13 s, which imply an evolutionary shift favoring A–T richness.

Dynamic entanglement in oscillating molecules and potential biological implications.

We demonstrate that entanglement can persistently recur in an oscillating two-spin molecule that is coupled to a hot and noisy environment, in which no static entanglement can survive. The system

Quantum entanglement between the electron clouds of nucleic acids in DNA

We model the electron clouds of nucleic acids in DNA as a chain of coupled quantum harmonic oscillators with dipole-dipole interaction between nearest neighbours resulting in a van der Waals type

Prokaryotic DNA polymerase I: evolution, structure, and "base flipping" mechanism for nucleotide selection.

TLDR
A mechanism for "flipping" of the complementary template base to enhance interactions with the incoming nucleotide substrate during DNA synthesis is presented, and those interactions that are responsible for the high fidelity of DNA synthesis are highlighted.

A Model for Separation and Melting of Deoxyribonucleic Acid in Replication and Transcription Processes

TLDR
A dynamical model on the basis of structure and motion of DNA under the actions of energy released in hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and enzymes is proposed to understand mechanism and essence of the replication or transcription process and promote quantitative description of these processes.

Hydrogen Bonding in DNA Base Pairs: Reconciliation of Theory and Experiment

Up till now, there has been a significant disagreement between theory and experiment regarding hydrogen bond lengths in Watson−Crick base pairs. To investigate the possible sources of this
