For this initial work, we shall focus on introducing a biological model for utilization [mainly] as a descriptive framework on which future analyses will be based. The model includes a definition of a biological system as a composite of properties that occupy defined...

We present a rationale and proposed approach to the modification and development of bind sites using their respective cognate ligands as template. This is in support of a plausible “instructive” role for the ligand and therefore its involvement in determination...

Valveless, tubular pumps are widespread in the animal kingdom, but the mechanism by which these pumps generate fluid flow are often in dispute. Where the pumping mechanism of many organs was once described as peristalsis, other mechanisms, such as dynamic suction...

This is a companion to A Gauge model for analysis of Biological systems. Here we reconcile the gauge model with a “real” system, which in this case is a unicellular system. We address effects of infusion of free osmolytes into an intracellular space of interest,...
