DNA Computation: Potential and Pitfalls

Ever since Len Adleman's famous paper on using DNA to solve the Travelling Salesman Problem there has been great interest in DNA based computation. In this presentation, the speaker will examine what is the potential of DNA based computation. In particular, will it ever beat silicon at raw performance? In addition, he will present a number of open problems of both a biological and computational nature that must be solved before DNA computers become a reality.
