Computer simulation of life is often used to study essential properties of living systems (such as evolution and adaptive behaviour).Artificial life is generated with the help of substituting blood corpuscles (blood cells). However, no truly safe and effective artificial blood product is available. Meanwhile,  has been a motivation for creating complex systems that are similar to biological system.
The aim of this work is to simulate and implement artificial life through the use of computer. Microsoft Visual Basic 6 as the background programming language was used for the implementation. Red blood cells are considered as the living systems, the cell structure is analyzed and its major constituent, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is also described based on how it replicates and mutates.
