Simulating living molecules with quantum computers Vlatko Vedral, Oxford & Singapore [email protected] Talk Outline A discussion regarding reductionism; Quantum effects in biology; Cold atoms quantum computers; Simulating energy transfer with quantum computers; Simulating life? In collaboration with Ross Dorner, John Goold, Libby Heaney,

Funding: Ministry of Education and National Science Foundation, Singapore, Leverhulme Trust, Templeton Foundation, James Martin School (Oxford). Reductionism or not? Macroscopic laws are compatible with the microscopic ones, but can they be fully derived from them? Different Views

Everything is either Physics or Stamp Collecting Rutherford "The ability to reduce everything to simple fundamental laws does not imply the ability to start from those laws and reconstruct the universe. More is Different Science 1972 At each stage, entirely new laws and generalisations are necessary, requiring inspiration and creativity. Anderson

RC-I aliquot concn. 1mg/ml in MOPS (at RTP) A grating spectrometer was used to analyse the emission then recorded with a Silicon CCD array. Sharp rise in emission intensity in the excitation range = 350 to 450 nm, peaking at 410nm. This coincides with the wavelength range where the FeS clusters and the FMN molecule in RC I absorb strongly. Low RC I absorption of excitation wavelengths above 450nm , where most the emission signal is the contribution from arc lamp.

Simulation of Biological Electron Transport Tune interactions and correlation functions of auxiliary BEC bath to simulate noise Properties of living systems: Homeostasis: Regulation of the internal environment to maintain a constant state; Organization: Being structurally composed of one or more cells, which are the basic units of life. Metabolism: Transformation of energy by converting chemicals and energy into cellular components and decomposing organic matter. Growth: Maintenance of a higher rate of anabolism than catabolism. A growing organism increases in size in all of its parts, rather than simply accumulating matter. Adaptation: The ability to change over a period of time in response to the environment. Reproduction: The ability to produce new individual organisms

The Colloid and the Crystal (Joseph Wood Krutch) No wonder that enthusiastic biologists in the nineteenth century, anxious to conclude that there was no qualitative difference between life and chemical processes, tried to believe that the crystal furnished the link, that its growth was actually the same as the growth of a living organism. But excusable though the fancy was, no one, I think, believes anything of the sort today. Protoplasm is a colloid and the colloids are fundamentally different from the crystalline substances. Instead of crystallizing they jell, and life in its simplest known form is a shapeless blob of rebellious jelly rather than a crystal eternally obeying the most ancient law. Living Systems = Maxwells demons

Jacques Monod Chance and Necessity (1970) (Democritus, "Everything existing in the universe is the fruit of chance and necessity.) Questions Are biomolecules capable of coherent quantum behaviour? Are quantum effects just deliberately suppressed or is there any advantage in having a fully quantum energy and matter transport? How far can quantum computers simulate bio-molecules? Can we understand laws of chemistry and biology as being consequencs of microsopic quantum physics? (Do physical facts fix all facts?) Can we build living systems bottom up?
