Unconventional Computing Based on Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions—Motivation, Goals, Perspectives
Paolo Bollella and Evgeny Katz
The present short review on biomolecular computing systems, mostly concentrated on enzyme-based logic gates, aims at summarizing achievements and speculates on perspectives of this research direction. While there are many comprehensive review articles on the related topics, the present overview offers suggestions on possible applications and extensions of the present achievements, which are important for motivating the research on unconventional computing with the use of biomolecules, particularly using enzyme-catalyzed reaction cascades.
