Strategies for Coexistence in Molecular Communication

Abstract : Some of the most ambitious applications of molecular communications are expected to lie in nanomedicine and advanced manufacturing. In these domains, the molecular communication system is surrounded by a range of biochemical processes, some of which may be sensitive to chemical species used for communication. Under these conditions, the biological system and the molecular communication system impact each other. As such, the problem of coexistence arises, where both the reliability of the molecular communication system and the function of the biological system must be ensured. In this paper, we study this problem with a focus on interactions with biological systems equipped with chemosensing mechanisms, which arises in a large class of biological systems. We motivate the problem by considering chemosensing mechanisms arising in bacteria chemo-taxis, a ubiquitous and well-understood class of biological systems. We then propose strategies for a molecular communication system to minimize disruption of biological system equipped with a chemosensing mechanism. This is achieved by exploiting tools from the theory of chemical reaction networks. To investigate the capabilities of our strategies, we obtain fundamental information theoretic limits by establishing a new connection with the problem of covert communications.
