Abstract: Membrane computing is a recent area that belongs to natural computing. This field works on
computational models based on nature's behavior to process the information. Recently, numerous models have
been developed and implemented with this purpose. P-systems are the structures which have been defined,
developed and implemented to simulate the behavior and the evolution of membrane systems which we find in
nature. What we show in this paper is an application capable to simulate the P-systems based on a multiagent
systems (MAS) technology. The main goal we want to achieve is to take advantage of the inner qualities of the
multiagent systems. This way we can analyse the proper functioning of any given p-system. When we observe a
P-system from a different perspective, we can be assured that it is a particular case of the multiagent systems.
This opens a new possibility, in the future, to always evaluate the P-systems in terms of the multiagent systems
