In her newly released book "Molecular Mechanisms of Autonomy in Biological Systems: The Relativity of Code, Energy, and Mass", published by Springer, Dr. Karimi explores how programmable, self-organizing cells and biocomputing can help the biotech industry develop cancer treatments and cellular regeneration therapies that can improve the lives of millions. In the book, Dr. Karimi breaks down the disciplinary silos between information theory, physics, computing, stem cell research and chemistry, providing a path forward for researchers who would never otherwise have collaborated.
Chapters focus on defining and explaining the regulatory molecular mechanisms behind different aspects of autonomy and self-organization in the sense of autonomous coding, data processing, structure (mass) formation and energy production in a biological system. Subsequent chapters discuss the cross-talk among mechanisms of energy, and mass and information, transformation in biological systems. Other chapters focus on applications regarding therapeutic approaches in regenerative medicine. Molecular Mechanisms of Autonomy in Biological Systems is an indispensable resource for scientists and researchers in regenerative medicine, stem cell biology, molecular biology, tissue engineering, developmental biology, biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, as well as big data sciences, complexity and soft computing.
