Abstract There are a number of biological phenomena and events that cannot yet be adequately described, such as cell growth and differentiation, which may be controlled by physical factors. Fröhlich (1980) has discussed the principles of dissipative structures as applied to electromagnetic interactions in relation to basic couplings in biological systems. Recently, increasing evidence of photon storage and ultraweak photon emission from living systems, particularly from DNA, has suggested the concept of an electromagnetic model of differentiation, based on the known quantum optical properties of nucleic acids. This model has the advantage over all ideas so far published, that it is (1) simple; (2) universally applicable to events in living matter, because it is consistent with both the quantum mechanical and the thermodynamic properties on the one hand, and the known biological and biochemical data and phenomena at the other hand; (3) it not only describes the phenomena and events in terms of pure mathematical parameters, but it can also explain them; and (4) it escapes the difficulty of finding basic control mechanisms, which themselves do not need a regulator, ad infinitum.
