What is Flowchart

Recent Advancements in Smart Remote Patient Monitoring, Wearable Devices, and Diagnostics Systems
Flowchart is a diagram that represents an algorithm for a step-by-step process flow. In automata theory, the flowcharts use triangular or rhomboidal shapes, rectangular or circular boxes for different tasks, like tests, outputs, or states.

Viral Invasion Flow-Chart for Pathogens With Replication Target in a Host Cell

The topic of this chapter covers viral bio-modeling. This chapter applies finite states automata to translate the stages of some viral invasions, from a natural language, into a flowchart encountered in the automata theory. In previous work, viruses with multiplication targets inside the nucleus of the host cell, typical DNA viruses, were investigated. Now, generalized flowcharts are proposed even for RNA viruses. The main scope of this work is to establish clear states, input variables, and output command functions for viral invasions inside a host cell. The chapter also proposes some applications. One of them concerns the new anti-viral drugs development, based on the virus failure at different tests encountered in the flowchart. The second application concerns the development of bio-inspired circuits.
