2013 JPBMB Special Theme Issue on Integral Biomathics: Can Biology Create a Profoundly New Mathematics and Computation?
Integral Biomathics (iBioMath) is based on a profoundly new understanding of the role of biology in natural and engineering sciences. Our driving argument is that living systems have fundamentally different notions of self-organization from those in engineering sciences today. Therefore, iBioMath prepares a new research program to investigate the biological imperatives of mathematics and computation in a profoundly new way. This will be based on understanding the premises for and the fundamental characteristics of emergence, organization, development and evolution in biology.
Our goal is to develop a set of novel mathematical formalisms capable of addressing the multiple facets of an integral model and a general theory for biocomputation within an adequate engineering frame of relevance. This effort is a continuation of the 2011 INBIOSA initiative (www.inbiosa.eu), an EU FP7 project (grant number 269961).
