This comprehensive guide, by pioneers in the field, brings together, for the first time, everything a new researcher, graduate student or industry practitioner needs to get started in molecular communication. Written with accessibility in mind, it requires little background knowledge, and provides a detailed introduction to the relevant aspects of biology and information theory, as well as coverage of practical systems. The authors start by describing biological nanomachines, the basics of biological molecular communication and the microorganisms that use it. They then proceed to engineered molecular communication and the molecular communication paradigm, with mathematical models of various types of molecular communication and a description of the information and communication theory of molecular communication. Finally, the practical aspects of designing molecular communication systems are presented, including a review of the key applications. Ideal for engineers and biologists looking to get up to speed on the current practice in this growing field.Read more
- The first book dedicated to molecular communication from an engineering perspective, providing an easy place to start learning about the field
- Complete introduction to the current state of the art in molecular communication, written by pioneers, provides an opportunity to learn from the researchers who have defined the field in its early stages
- Assumes limited background knowledge in either engineering or biology, making it a great starting point for cross-disciplinary material
Reviews & endorsements
"… hits the spot … clearly written, relatively easy to read, yet very comprehensive. It gives an overview of potential solutions, supported by success stories, and explains the mechanisms of operations from the very outset. It is definitely a recommended position for those who start with nanoscale communication concepts in biological systems."
