At the "cross of the Rhine River and the Jura", the biotechnology and mecanical industry and research (micro and electronical in Jura) seems a priority of development for the trinational city of Basel. The common point of biotechnology and micro and electronical mecanics are DNA computing and mobile robotic.
As the idea of the project was born, it was then interesting to work on a "small" key project, that would be able to make start the more global project basel biotechnology corridor. This key project is a small research center in Riehen (Kanton Basel City).
The mollecular and DNA or GNA computing research project of this center should be a synergy to the greater project. A field of application of DNA computing is for exemple the cryptanalysis. This would make modern encodings, that are not to break with today's computers, ineffective.
