Molecule As Language With Some Syntax

a: Antigen ~
b: noun

What: "Atlan and Cohen explain that 'the antigen is like a noun serving as the subject (or address) of the immune sentence, while the germline signals are like predicates'. Therefore, a 'chosen type of immune response is the outcome of concrete connection between antigen subject and germline predicate signals'." The link is an academic bitch fest on immune system paradigms and why the guy writing the essay is okay and the other guys are assholes. A classic example of what academia is really like.
