Abstract / Description of output

We present a probabilistic simulator of P systems that implements the evolution-communication model proposed in [8] enriched with some probabilistic parameters inspired by cell biology. After describing the software and its working, we compare the mathematical model with the biological reality of the cell. Then, we present some biological applications showing how one can use this software to simulate simple but interesting biological phenomena, related to respiration in Escherichia coli and the interaction between respiration and photosynthesis in cyanobacteria. The present chapter is an extension of the work presented in [5].
