Abstract : Various formalisms for expressing the structure and behavior of biological systems are proposed and discussed. The formalisms include tiling or 'domino' systems, the von Neumann cellular automaton system, and several systems based on the monogenic normal systems Tag and Lag. There is some discussion of desirable characteristics of models for biological theory. (Author)
