Ihekwaba, Adaoha and Mardare, Radu (2007) A Process Algebraical Approach to Modelling Compartmentalized Biological Systems. UNSPECIFIED.
This paper introduces Protein Calculus, a special modeling language designed for encoding and calculating the behaviors of compartmentilized biological systems. The formalism combines, in a unified framework, two successful computational paradigms - process algebras and membrane systems. The goal of Protein Calculus is to provide a formal tool for transforming collected information from in vivo experiments into coded definition of the different types of proteins, complexes of proteins, and membrane-organized systems of such entities. Using this encoded information as input, our calculus computes, in silico, the possible behaviors of a living system. This is the preliminary version of a paper that was published in Proceedings of International Conference of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering (ICCMSE), American Institute of Physics, AIP Proceedings, N 2: 642-646, 2007 (http://scitation.aip.org/dbt/dbt.jsp?KEY=APCPCS&Volume=963&Issue=2).
