This volume presents the proceedings from the third DIMACS workshop on "DNA Based Computers" held at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia). The workshop was part of the Special Year on Molecular Biology and the Special Year on DNA Computing. The focus of this proceedings volume is on the multidisciplinary nature of the workshop with emphasis on the interaction between biology and biochemistry on one hand and computer science and mathematics on the other.

Co-published with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 1-7 were co-published with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).


Graduate students and research mathematicians working in computer science.
