History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 25 (2):255-273 (2003)
|Abstract||Over these last few years once again the relationship between biology and information has been debated with great liveliness. The crucial points concern the meaning of the term ‘information’ and whether the so-called “information talk” is really necessary inside biology.I will proceed by first commenting on some points of the debate (§ 2), then showing that a biophysical account of the process from the nucleotide sequences to the correlated amino acid sequences is possible (§ 3). In this way, I will suggest that a satisfying account of that process can be offered without entering the quicksand of information.|
