Reviews

@from:D. Koruga @qu:Combining molecular biology, computers, and near future nanotechnology, this book has introduced us into the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century, during which it will become a classic in the literature of molecular computing. @source:Annals of Biomedical Engineering @from:A. Onton @qu:...bound to titillate and challenge the imaginations of those of us who are captured by a desire to comprehend our own consciousness. @source:Journal of Molecular Electronics
