Although the notion of an integrating equation of life has yet to be discovered, the Fibonacci order may institute a basis for such a growth. We examined various biological structures based on Fibonacci numbers. We have observed that (i) for wasp Fibonacci’s sequence increases the information amount. (ii) The energy sources should be connected at both ends of DNA structure; single source is not suitable for energy transmission. (iii) Array form of eye’s receptor cell is enabled to capture the clocking conduction, localization and delocalization nature of field. We also identified the entire resonance peaks for every reported structure. Fibonacci-based structures may be used in biomedical applications like as to understand the signal propagation along the structures.
