Abstract

This paper proposes a biological cell-based communication protocol to enable communication between biological nanodevices. Inspired by existing communication network protocols, our solution combines two molecular computing techniques (DNA and enzyme computing), to design a protocol stack for molecular communication networks. Based on computational requirements of each layer of the stack, our solution specifies biomolecule address encoding/decoding, error correction and link switching mechanisms for molecular communication networks.
