The paperback version of the groundbreaking book about the next generation of computers: not only are they smaller—they're alive. Cells, gels, and DNA strands are the "wetware" of the twenty-first century. Imagine taking cells from a cancer patient and programming them to detect disease and then prompt the body to cure itself. Or clothes woven with microchips, nanofibers, and living cells to form wearable bio-weapons detection systems. Both of these revolutionary applications are closer than we think. Some scientists are pushing the boundaries even further by creating synthetic biology where brand new creatures are engineered in the laboratory. In this breathtaking book, a leading expert in the field reveals just how the stuff of science fiction is rapidly becoming a reality. This new technology will change the way we think—not just about computers, but about the nature of life itself.

About the Author:

Dr Martyn Amos was awarded the world's first PhD in DNA computing; he is currently a Senior Lecturer in Computing and Mathematics at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.

Review:

"'Biocomputing is perhaps the most fascinating and potentially important area of science there is at the moment, and this book is an excellent introduction.' Professor Richard Jones, FRS, University of Sheffield 'Amos has witnessed the early years of this nascent science and writes about them with affection and enthusiasm' Sunday Times 'An eye-opening presentation... Amos makes the science accessible, with well-written and nicely structured explanations. It's clear that this field will continue to throw up dramatic advances.' New Statesman"
