About this book

This is the first text and monograph about DNA computing, a molecular approach that might revolutionize our thinking and ideas about computing. It starts with an introduction to DNA-related matters, the basics of biochemistry and language and computation theory, and progresses to the most advanced mathematical theory developed so far in the area.


Part I. Background and Motivation: DNA: The power of complementarity.- Beginnings of molecular computing.- Part II. Mathematical Theory: Introduction to language theory.- Sticker systems.- Watson-Crick automata.- Insertion-deletion systems.- Universality by finite H systems.- Splicing circular strings.- Distributed H systems.- Splicing revisited.
