The presence of structural order and partial disorder is discussed for several important biological molecules such as DNA, enzymes and proteins, as well as for cellular structures such as nerve myelin. The relationship between structural "fuzziness" and biological function is discussed as an important aspect of biological complexity and biodynamics. The possible effects of partial disorder on the electron density of states in biological structures are predicted based on known quantum… Expand
Computer models and automata theory in biology and medicine
TLDR
The present analysis of relational theories in biology and computer simulation has inspired a number of new results which are presented here as "Conjectures" since their proofs are too lengthy and too technical to be included in this review. Expand
