Summary:"Emergent Computation is concerned with recent applications of mathematical linguistics or automata theory. The primary focus is upon "bioinformatics" (the genome and rising interest in the proteome), but the closing chapter also examines applications in biology, medicine, anthropology, and so on." "The papers examine the subjects of interest from the point of view of applying language theory to search for new results, but also as biological automatons (implementations or machines) to do calculations." "This book will be of value of those studying bioinformatics, biochemistry, computer science, mathematical linguistics, and biology, as well as pharmacology (with the possible promise of medically active artificial DNA, RNA, and proteins). Laboratory results demonstrating the usefulness of the topics discussed are shown both in vitro and in vivo."--Jacket.
