A framework for modeling DNA based molecular systems


Journal Article

In this paper, we propose a framework for a discrete event simulator for simulating the DNA based nano-robotical systems. We describe a physical model that captures the conformational changes of the solute molecules. We also present methods to simulate various chemical reactions due to the molecular collisions, including hybridization, dehybridization and strand displacement. The feasibility of such a framework is demonstrated by some preliminary results. © 2006 Springer-Verlag.
