Overview

This volume presents the proceedings of a conference held at Princeton University in April 1995 as part of the DIMACS Special Year on Mathematical Support for Molecular Biology. The subject of the conference was the new area of DNA based computing. DNA based computing is the study of using DNA strands as individual computers. The concept was initiated by Leonard Adleman's paper in Science in November 1994.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Some might opine that the rush to microminiaturization has overflowed the bounds of reason, but the nine selected papers here solemnly discuss using DNA strands as individual computers, a concept loosed upon the world by Leonard Adleman in 1994. They explore constructing a molecular computer, breaking DES using a molecular computer, speeding up computations with molecular biology, the complexity of restricted and unrestricted models of molecular computation, and other considerations. No index. The member prices are $29 for individual and $39 for institutions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
