This article needs a complete rewrite. I'll do it if I ever get time to do all the research. It currently gives the impression that artificial chemistries are a very specific, well-defined type of model, whereas it's actually a rather broad area of research that uses many different types of model which don't necessarily have much in common other than being inspired by chemistry in some way. 220.127.116.11 13:56, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
How about: "And artificial chemistry is a model inspired by chemistry". Probably it is too general. THis would include "normal" kinetic models or models found in the BioModels DB, which are not artificial chemistries. One imporant difference is that a molecule (or a reaction) of an AC has not one-to-one counterpart in reality. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:13, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
