abstract = {The localization of nanobots in the human body is a crucial element to enable diagnostic ability. Current localization schemes for nanobots primarily rely on mathematical principles, but our proposed approach offers a different perspective. In this paper, we present a completely novel idea to locate nanobots within the human body by employing local pattern recognition based on unique fingerprints. We thoroughly investigate and assess various substances in the vicinity of nanobots to develop distinctive fingerprints for all major tissues. Among the candidates, we identify the human proteome as the most suitable option due to its high tissue specificity. Through our research, we determine unique combinations of protein-coding genes, ensuring exclusive localization for each specific body region. Each tissue's optimal fingerprint consists of only two protein-coding genes, which do not intersect with other tissues, further guaranteeing accurate localization. We propose the detection of these fingerprints by using DNA-based nanonetworks, enabling targeted drug delivery and facilitating the precise localization of nanobots or their measurements within the human body.},

ABSTRACT={One of the biggest problems in modern medicine is diagnosing
deviations from an individual norm. Most diagnostic
methods rely on comparison with a population
average. However, this does not account for personal
variations. DNA-based nanonetworks offer an alternative
approach. This paper presents a novel DNA-based
nanonetwork architecture that measures several individual
health parameters and memorizes them. Based on
that, the network determines deviations from that norm
and communicates them to an external agent."

abstract = {One of the most important research issues in the field of nanonetworks is the problem of constructing real networks in practice. To build such networks, one needs to create the nano-devices themselves as well as a computing and a communication mechanism. We already have developed such a concept based on DNA building blocks (so called DNA tiles), which is able to generate all three mechanisms by self-construction, basically by providing a sufficiently large number of specific DNA building blocks. Such networks are Turing complete; however, as we demonstrate in this paper, the number of required building blocks to execute computations by simulating Turing machines is large. We will show in this paper that the number can be reduced by using specific, more efficient sets of building blocks for problems that can be modeled as boolean formulas. For specific mathematical operations like And or Add, even smaller solutions/message molecules can be created. This paper presents small message molecules for frequently requested mathematical problems. We present nanonetworks for the Thres and Add operations. Thres operations can be used to register if critical concentrations of disease markers have been reached. Add forms the basis for many advanced communication protocols. Furthermore, message molecules for Mult, Xor and Inc are conceptualized. The presented message molecules are smaller and less error prone compared to the tilesets that result from more generic approaches. It is therefore more likely that they can be employed in groundbreaking wet-lab experiments in the near future.}

abstract={Akyildiz et al. envisioned the use of nanonetworks as a new paradigm for computation and communication on a very small scale. We present a new approach to implement nanonetworks with molecular communication using tile-based self-assembly systems on the basis of DNA. In this model, the medium of communication is filled with DNA-based molecules. Furthermore, some nanobots are capable of creating or releasing said molecules. Once present, they can be detected by other nanobots and interpreted as messages. Some DNA-based molecule systems are capable of universal computation. We show that it is possible to construct systems, in which the evaluation to true of an arbitrary decision problem is a precondition for the assembly of a message molecule. We relocate computations from nanobots into message molecules, thereby revolutionizing the paradigm for computation in nanonetworks. This approach can be interpreted as computation inside the communication channel. We further present message molecules that only assemble if a marker has been detected at least k times, as a proof of concept.}

ABSTRACT={The simulation of nanobots in their working environment is crucial to
promote their application in the medical context. Several simulators for
nanonetworks investigate new communication paradigms at nanoscale. However,
the influence of the environment, namely the human body, on the movement
and communication of nanobots was not considered so far. We propose a
framework for simulating medical nanonetworks, which integrates a
nanonetwork simulator with a body simulator. We derive requirements for a
body model that forms the basis for our prototypical implementation of the
body simulator BloodVoyagerSas part of the network simulator ns-3. An
evaluation shows that BloodVoyagerS successfully moves nanobots in the
simulated cardiovascular system. After about 7 minutes, the nanobot
distribution reaches a dynamic equilibrium. The prototype shows promise to
provide a more realistic full-body simulation to investigate movement and
communication of nanobots in medical applications.}

 abstract = {Statistical and biochemical studies of the standard genetic code (SGC) have found evidence that the impact of mistranslations is minimized in a way that erroneous codes are either synonymous or code for an amino acid with similar polarity as the originally coded amino acid. It could be quantified that the SGC is optimized to protect this specific chemical property as good as possible. In recent work, it has been speculated that the multilevel optimization of the genetic code stands in the wider context of overlapping codes. This work tries to follow the systematic approach on mistranslations and to extend those analyses to the general effect of frameshift mutations on the polarity conservation of amino acids. We generated one million random codes and compared their average polarity change over all triplets and the whole set of possible frameshift mutations. While the natural code—just as for the point mutations—appears to be competitively robust against frameshift mutations as well, we found that both optimizations appear to be independent of each other. For both, better codes can be found, but it becomes significantly more difficult to find candidates that optimize all of these features—just like the SGC does. We conclude that the SGC is not only very efficient in minimizing the consequences of mistranslations, but rather optimized in amino acid polarity conservation for all three effects of code alteration, namely translational errors, point and frameshift mutations. In other words, our result demonstrates that the SGC appears to be much more than just “one in a million”.}
