Synopsis: Nanotechnology and molecular computation are two of the fastest advancing areas in recent years. Gaining attention over the past few decades, these fields are steadily becoming cornerstones of our developing culture in the 21st century. This book compiles research in areas where nanoscience and computer science meet. This book explores current and future trends that discuss areas such as cellular nanocomputers, DNA self-assembly, and the architectural design of a nano-brain. The authors of each chapter have provided in-depth insight into the current state of research in nanotechnology and molecular computation as well as identified successful approaches, tools and methodologies in their research.
