The idea that of community as a mathematical description of a collection of states, or occasions, associated in line with a definite topology has been constructed lately and has resulted in a unique method of actual global. This procedure is not any doubt very important within the box of biology. in reality organic structures will be thought of networks. hence, for example, an enzyme-catalysed response is a community that hyperlinks, in keeping with a definite topology, a few of the states of the protein and of its complexes with the substrates and items of the chemical response. Connections among neurons, social kin in animal and human populations also are examples of networks. for this reason there's little question that the idea that of community transgresses the limits among conventional medical disciplines. This publication is aimed toward discussing in actual phrases those interesting new issues on basic protein version lattices, supramolecular protein edifices, multienzyme and gene networks. *Physical and mathematical technique of organic phenomena.*Offers biochemists and biologists the mathematical heritage required to appreciate the text.*Associates within the similar normal formula, the guidelines of communique of a message and association of a system.*Provides a uncomplicated definition and mathematical expression of the strategies of relief, integration, emergence and complexity that have been thus far time-honoured and imprecise
