    Haplotype assembly from high-throughput sequencing data is a computationally challenging problem. In fact, most of its formulations, including the most widely used one that relies on optimizing the minimum error correction criterion, are known to be NP-hard. Since finding exact solutions to haplotype assembly problems is difficult, suboptimal heuristics are often used. In this paper, we propose a ... View full abstract»

    An example of a specific molecular bond is the affinity of the DNA base A for T, but not for C, G, or another A. This contrasts nonspecific bonds, such as the affinity of any positive charge for any negative charge (like-unlike), or of nonpolar material for itself when in aqueous solution (like-like). Recent experimental breakthroughs in DNA nanotechnology demonstrate that a particular nonspecific... View full abstract»

    An adaptive control method of angular sensitivity for a VHF-band nano-antenna is presented. This antenna is composed of a single carbon nanotube cantilever immersed in a DC electric field. The behavior of the antenna is analytically described using a singly clamped metallic sphere model and the image charge method. We derive design guidelines for the direction and shape of angular sensitivity; the... View full abstract»

    The computational capability of chemical reaction networks (CRNs) intensively motivates molecular computation. In this paper, a total of five systematic approaches of synthesizing combinational logic with chemical reactions are proposed. As in some of our earlier works, a Karnaugh map (K-map), which well depicts the logic function of a certain CRN system, is required for all approaches. Several co... View full abstract»

  • ISI-Avoiding Modulation for Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication

    A molecular diffusion channel is a channel with memory, as molecules released into the medium hit the receptors after a random delay. Modulating over the diffusion channel is performed by choosing the type, intensity, or the released time of molecules diffused in the environment over time. Motivated by the desire to keep the encoder and decoder simple and the fact that channel state information is... View full abstract»

    Graphene with significant potentials in diverse areas of physical and biological sciences is proposed as a solution to complementary problems of semiconductor and biomedical industries, i.e., the on-chip (OC) interconnect bottleneck and in-body (IB) wireless communications/power transfer (PT), respectively. Emerging nanoscale solutions with radio frequency, optical, ultrasonic, or molecular channe... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, and Multi-Scale Communications (T-MBMC) is devoted to the principles, design, and analysis of communication systems that use physics beyond classical electromagnetism. This includes molecular, quantum, and other physical, chemical and biological techniques; as well as new communication techniques at small scales or across multiple scales (e.g., nano to micro to macro; note that strictly nanoscale systems, 1-100 nm, are outside the scope of this journal). Original research articles on one or more of the following topics are within scope: mathematical modeling, information/communication and network theoretic analysis, standardization and industrial applications, and analytical or experimental studies on communication processes or networks in biology. Contributions on related topics may also be considered for publication. Contributions from researchers outside the IEEE’s typical audience are encouraged.
