In this paper, we are presenting a bionic approach towards real-time systems research. Observing
that a cell is both real-time computing and real-time manufacturing system, the work presented
here explores the analogy between the real-time computer systems (and their management) and
the molecular biology control systems. This paper is a further elaboration of the idea that the cell is
governed by a real-time operating system that resides in the DNA. It also gives insight into how
knowledge obtained from the biological systems could lead to further evolution and improvement of
the complex human-made real-time systems.
