Today it is hardly possible to include in one book all the achievements of molecular and biomolecular research since nearly all sciences are actively involved in research on bioelectronic processes and biomaterials for molecular biotechnology (this term may best describe the entire scope of biotechnological problems at the molecular level, including those of biocomputers). The number of natural and artificial elements and devices of molecular scale, discovered in nature, or created artificially in laboratories, is growing constantly. On this basis, future biocomputing systems may be created or may precede the appearance of entirely new systems of yet unpredictable structure. In Sections lA to 1E, we offer a general survey of molecular biotechnological problems. However, only one of them, the use of biological molecular light converters, and use of their artificial analogs as biosensors and microelements for a biocomputer was chosen as the subject of this book. Why only biomolecular light converters, we may ask? There are three reasons for this choice.
