Biomolecular computing systems: principles, progress and potential

  title={Biomolecular computing systems: principles, progress and potential},
  author={Yaakov Benenson},
  journal={Nature Reviews Genetics},
The task of information processing, or computation, can be performed by natural and man-made 'devices'. Man-made computers are made from silicon chips, whereas natural 'computers', such as the brain, use cells and molecules. Computation also occurs on a much smaller scale in regulatory and signalling pathways in individual cells and even within single biomolecules. Indeed, much of what we recognize as life results from the remarkable capacity of biological building blocks to compute in highly… CONTINUE READING
