  title={The Oxford Handbook of Membrane Computing},
  author={Gheorghe Paun and Grzegorz Rozenberg and Arto Salomaa},
Part of the broader research field of natural computing, Membrane Computing is an area within computing science that aims to abstract computing ideas and models from the structure and functioning of living cells, as well as from the way the cells are organized in tissues or higher order structures. It studies models of computation (known as P systems) inspired by the biochemistry of cells, in particular by the role of membranes in the compartmentalization of living cells into "protected… 
An Overview of Membrane Computing
A high level overview of the research in membrane computing over the last 12 years is given and complexity classes (time, space) of membrane systems and their connection with the classical complexity classes have been investigated.
Membrane Computing as the Paradigm for Modeling Systems Biology
Experiences in applying membrane Computing in modeling biological systems as well as possibilities of incorporating membrane computing into other computer science paradigms to enhance the use of membrane computing in systems biology are discussed.
Membrane Computing (Tutorial)
The aim of the tutorial is to give a general overview of the Membrane Computing paradigm, where the computational devices (known as P systems) are in some sense an abstraction of a living cell.

Four papers in this issue mainly focus on the applications of membrane computing, including fault diagnosis with spiking neural P systems, image segmentation, pedestrian behaviours simulation of intelligence decision P systems and K-means algorithm optimised by tissue-like P systems.
Tools and Simulators for Membrane Computing-A Literature Review
This paper tries to classify and tries to a give review of the tools that have been designed and developed to be used for the biological applications of P Systems.
Boundaries of membrane in P systems relying on multiset approximation spaces in language R
A new program library in language R is initiated which had been created to encourage some fundamental calculations in membrane systems combined with multiset approximation spaces.
Image Segmentation Using Membrane Computing: A Literature Survey
An up to date comprehensive literature review pertaining to the application of membrane computing in the area of digital image analysis, especially image segmentation, comprehensively and systematically is presented.
The GPU on the simulation of cellular computing models
This paper analyzes the simulation of a family of recognizer P systems with active membranes that solves the Satisfiability problem in linear time on different instances of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to demonstrate that GPUs offer a valid alternative for high-performance computing at a considerably lower cost.
Modeling hormone-induced calcium oscillations in liver cell with membrane computing
This paper investigates the implementation of the framework for modelling and verification based on membrane computing with a biological process of hormone-induced calcium oscillations in liver cell and demonstrates that the fundamental properties of the biological process have been preserved by membrane computing model.
