The goal of this study is to show that biological texts are not „texts“ only in a metaphorical sense, but in a full post Lotmanian meaning of this term within literary studies. Genetic text written in DNA code is not a biological parallel to printed books, but rather a cyber-text in the sense of Aarseth’s definition of ergodic literature. The cyber-textual feature of living cells creates a space for the creation of new forms of remediation of literary works within biomedia. It opens new horizons for a literary work and generates new literary forms, such as genetic poetry. First, we show how biological texts fulfil the criteria of Aarseth’s cyber-text definition, than we demonstrate the process of the remediation of literary texts into biomedia on the examples of the authors Wong, Davis, Kac and Bök.
