Dear all,
Hundreds of articles are appearing every day on the COVID-19 virus, the global pandemic and local response and monitoring.
They range from medicine, microbiology, virology, epidemiology to computational (micro)biology mathematical modeling of outbreaks to criticisms of gain-of-function research.
Increasing numbers of articles focus on using semantic web technologies and AI to share the growing body of available global data for modeling, predictive analytics and study of the virus.
My question is simple: does there exist literature which focuses on artificial intelligence as a modeling paradigm for genomics, DNA and RNA replication, and a virus as an AI agent?
I am asking this because of the following points.

(1) Much of the composition of DNA in genomes does not relate directly to genes and other functional agents.
(2) Somehow a lot of information or precursor-knowledge appears to be stored in DNA and RNA strands.
(3) A virus contains a "manageable" amount of data for modeling and it seems worthwhile to study whether a virus can be modeled as a self-contained, multi-layered ecosystem of IT and logical constructs and programs.
(4) The concept from zoology, i.e. estivation, could be said to be applicable to viruses
(5) If we look at the article in Gizmodo titled Hibernating Aliens Could Explain the Great Silence

Hibernating Aliens Could Explain the Great Silence

We have yet to find any traces of extraterrestrial intelligence, a vexing problem known as the Fermi Paradox. A ...



We could argue that the artificial intelligence could also be encoded as a virus.

AI modeling of viruses could potentially help us with predictive analytics for the evolution of viruses through mutations

I checked the Internet and found nothing.
Anyone out there who can prove me wrong in not finding anything or the idea of modeling a virus as AI for predictive analytics?
