Self-organization in prebiological systems: Simulations of a model for the origin of genetic information

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Computer simulations of a "spin glass" model for the origin of biological information are discussed. Selection is found to occur among a wide diversity of possible species, and in addition competition, adaptation, and hysteresis are all exhibited.
