This hugely interdisciplinary e-book discusses the phenomenon of lifestyles, together with its foundation and evolution (and additionally human cultural evolution), opposed to the historical past of thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and data concept. one of the principal subject matters is the seeming contradiction among the second one legislations of thermodynamics and the excessive measure of order and complexity produced by means of residing platforms. This paradox has its solution within the details content material of the Gibbs loose power that enters the biosphere from open air resources, because the writer exhibits. The position of data in human cultural evolution is one other concentration of the e-book. one of many ultimate chapters discusses the merging of knowledge know-how and biotechnology right into a new self-discipline — bio-information know-how.

Der renommierte Tierphysiologe Heinz Penzlin bespricht in einem umfassenden Überblick die Einzigartigkeit lebendiger Systeme in unserer Welt. Bestimmte Stoffe und ein thermodynamisch offener Charakter der Systeme fernab vom Gleichgewicht sind zwar notwendige, aber noch keineswegs hinreichende Bedingungen für die Existenz von „Leben“. Lebendige Systeme unterscheiden sich von anorganischen nicht darin, dass sie eine andere Physik und Chemie oder einen zusätzlichen „Faktor“ besitzen, sondern darin, dass sie eine interne supplier verkörpern und selbsttätig aufrechterhalten, die nicht nur umfangreiche Stoff- und Energieumsätze, sondern auch komplexe Informationstransfers erfordert.

Gegenstand dieser Übersicht zu den Grundlagen der Theoretischen Biologie sind die Prinzipien und Gesetzmäßigkeiten, die alle Lebewesen - trotz ihrer enormen Formenvielfalt – gleichermaßen kennzeichnen.

In the period of "big data," technology is more and more details pushed, and the potential of pcs to shop, deal with, and combine gigantic quantities of knowledge has given upward thrust to such new disciplinary fields as biomedical informatics. utilized ontology bargains a technique for the association of medical details in computer-tractable shape, drawing on thoughts not just from laptop and knowledge technological know-how but in addition from linguistics, common sense, and philosophy. This booklet offers an creation to the sphere of utilized ontology that's of specific relevance to biomedicine, overlaying theoretical elements of ontologies, top practices for ontology layout, and examples of biomedical ontologies in use.

After defining an ontology as a illustration of the categories of entities in a given area, the booklet distinguishes among other kinds of ontologies and taxonomies, and indicates how utilized ontology attracts on extra conventional principles from metaphysics. It provides the center gains of the elemental Formal Ontology (BFO), now utilized by over 100 ontology initiatives all over the world, and gives examples of area ontologies that make the most of BFO. The publication additionally describes internet Ontology Language (OWL), a standard framework for Semantic net applied sciences. all through, the publication presents concrete ideas for the layout and building of area ontologies.
