The different aspects of bioelectronics reviewed in this book emphasize the immense developments in the field of bioelectronics and nano-bioelectronics. The range of themes addressed emphasize key aspects and the future perspectives of nano-bioelectronics. The book discusses the electronic coupling of DNA and proteins with electronic devices to build new information systems and to apply the systems as biosensors. The exploitation of networks of neurons connected with electronic devices in future information processing systems and the use of nano-objects to assess cellular function is also discussed in detail. The various topics addressed in this book will be of interest to physicists, chemists, biologists, material scientists and engineers, as well as attract young researchers and introduce them to the field with an enormous collection of literature references.
