Bio-systems are nature-made machine for information processing. To study how they workis interesting from a scientific point of view and is important from a technological point ofview. In this project, we focus on a model organism of Physarum plasmodium as one of themost elementary creature. The organism’s capacity of information processing is evaluatedby an experiment and its algorithm is proposed. We found that a cell can anticipate aperiodic environmental event and recall it later, and that the capacity can be realized by acollective motion of biochemical poly-rhythmic oscillations. We suggested that the capacityof this kind may be common widely in phyllogenetic tree from protozoa to plant and animal.
