Title:  The Fundamentals of Internet of Bio-nano Things


Dr. Akyildiz, Advisor   

Dr. Sarioglu, Chair

Dr. Ghovanloo


The objective of the proposed research is to establish the foundations of IoBNT. To this end, understanding how cells can be programmed as BNT’s and how a molecular communication network can be established among multiple BNT’s is imperative to design efficient yet practical IoBNT applications. . Firstly, genetically engineered bacteria-based biotransceivers are investigated for transmission of information between bacteria populations, where bacteria can generate and respond to the molecular signals. A biochemical model of biological circuits and a biotransceiver architecture is introduced that combines sensing, transmitting, receiving and processing blocks for M-ary pulse amplitude modulation. Secondly, we studied the bacteria nanonetwork channel on the population level utilizing Keller-Segelmodel and traveling wave solutions to investigate the propagation of bacteria carrying information. We investigate the impact of social behavior on the chemotactic response of the bacteria, and analyze the effects of cooperation, competition and cheating on the delay, attenuation and data rate of the channel. Thirdly, a new end-to-end model which incorporates pheromone behavior with communication theory for plants. The proposed model includes both the transmission and reception processes as well as the propagation channel modeled as a Gaussian puff to study the pheromone channel characteristics.
