This peerless volume provides a definitive understanding of the nanotechnology tools, methods, and issues fueling the drive to non-silicon computing. It brings you up to speed on DNA computing and membrane computing, and describes nanobiomachines including NanobioICT and their potential in information processing and communications. You gain insight into techniques for representing and operating information by molecules, along with other key issues like controlling biomolecular signaling and designing algorithms for molecular computing and moleware communication. The book presents the biological and mathematical aspects of kinase computing as an example of molecular computation through cell-based nanobiomachines, and reviews the latest directions in molecular bioinformatics including protein interactome networks. With its wealth of models, algorithms, designs, and problem-solving applications, this volume is the first to bridge the gap between biomaterial sciences/molecular biology modeling and bioinformatics engineering for bionanoscale phenomena.
