Molecular computing involves computation done at the molecular scale. DNA computing is a class of molecular computing that does computation by the use of reactions involving DNA molecules. DNA computing has been by far the most successful (in scale and complexity of the computations and molecular assemblies done) of all known approaches to molecular computing, perhaps due in part to the very well-established biotechnology and biochemistry on which its experimental demonstration relies, as well as the frequent teaming of scientists in the field with multiple essential disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, material science, and computer science.
