A Graph – String Model of Gene Assembly in Ciliates
2006 (English)In: Zeszyty Naukowe Wydzialu ETI Politechniki Gdanskiej, 2006, Vol. 10, 521-534 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The ciliates are a family of unicellular organisms that characterize themselves by having two types of nuclei, micro - and macronuclei. During cell mating the genetic material must change from the micronuclei to the macronuclei form. The paper summarises a formal model for this change. The model, which is described in recent works, is based on strings and graphs. It shows that inside the cell complex computational operations have to take place.
