Description

This book provides a review of biochemistry as an algebra of molecules of living matter and utilizes Clifford algebras to discuss the basic biochemical processes of DNA replication, DNA transcription, RNA splicing and translation. Viral carcinogenesis is discussed in depth, specific attention is paid to the structural features of biomolecules that define a particular Clifford algebra, and useful examples of genetic information being transformed into Clifford algebras are provided.
