Hadorn, M; Burla, B; Eggenberger Hotz, P (2009). Towards tailored communication networks in assemblies of artificial cells. In: 4th Australian Conference on Artificial Life (ACAL 2009), Melbourne, Australia, 01 December 2009 - 04 December 2009, 126-135.
Living Technology is researching novel IT making strong use of programmable chemical systems. These chemical systems shall finally converge to artificial cells resulting in evolvable complex information systems. We focus on procedural manageability and information processing capabilities of such information systems. Here, we present a novel resource-saving formation, processing, and examination procedure to generate and handle single compartments representing preliminary stages of artificial cells. Its potential is exemplified by testing the influence of different glycerophospholipids on the stability of the compartments. We discuss how the procedure could be used both in evolutionary optimization of self-assembling amphiphilic systems and in engineering tailored communication networks enabling life-like information processing in multicompartment aggregates of programmable composition and spatial configuration.
