DNA-based molecular communication is a novel paradigm for nanoscale computation and communication that uses self-assembling DNA message molecules. Due to their design, these message molecules can compute mathematical operations while self-assembling. They can be used in DNA-based nanonetworks to detect DNA sequences and compute information for releasing either medication or other molecules. This paradigm avoids many limitations that electromagnetic nanonetworks currently face. This paper presents a variety of novel advantages and use cases for DNA-based molecular communication. For many of those, no feasible solution exists today. DNA-based molecular communication can even detect and consider multiple different DNA sequences for decision-making. Furthermore, it allows for adjustable error correction, immediate treatments, bio-compatibility, and the use of already available materials.
