The part is a selected list of publications covering both scientific theories of the last 20 years (evolutionary biology, chaos, complexity, neurology, physics, sociology, etc.), which make for a more integrate cultural and historical background of the present researches, and the issues approached within this edition. While compiling the bibliography, special attention was paid to the books on contemporary art and technology interrelations (general problems) and to the list of articles on artificial life. A separate subsection includes publications concentrating on analysis on the meeting ground of art and genetics, art and biomedical technologies, etc. Alongside with the articles, monographs and recent catalogues of art exhibitions and conferences the bibliography also contains editions on different aesthetic aspects of plant and animal breeding.
