In this two-section chapter, we sketch applications of totally parallel grammars with context conditions. That is, we apply their special versions to microbiological organisms. We give three case studies that make use of these grammars. Two case studies are presented of biological organisms whose development is affected by some abnormal conditions, such as a virus infection. From an even more practical point of view, by using these grammars, a powerful and elegant implementation tool is presented in the area of biological simulation and modeling. Specifically, it implements models of growing plants.
