Title: Artificial biochemistry

We model chemical and biochemical systems as collectives of interacting stochastic automata, with each automaton representing a molecule that undergoes state transitions. In this artificial biochemisā€ try, automata interact by the equivalent of the law of mass action. We investigate several simple but intriguing automata collectives by stochastic simulation and by ODE analysis.
