SHF: Small: Collaborative Research: Computing with Cells-The Neuron Case

Description :  

As a result of recent developments in biologically inspired computing methods, it is the objective of the researchers of this project to model computer processing on cellular membrane proteins. Because biological membrane systems have strong correlations with mathematical theories, compartmental communications, algorithmic characters and flexible basic data structures, such systems may be ideal for novel computational applications. Specifically, P systems associated with membrane proteins will be examined due to strong parallels with computational models and an ability to compute in polynomial time. The investigators aim to examine membrane complexity and the power of reversible systems, describe the discrete simulation of cells, and ultimately capture cellular self-configuration and maintenance for computational applications.
