The ability to create communication networks of biological nanoscale devices has the potential to open up new opportunities and applications, particularly in areas such as health care and information processing. Inspired by recent developments in molecular communication and biomolecular computing, we present in this paper a biological cell based molecular communication transmitting platform using synthetic molecular computing techniques. We investigated two protocol solutions which include DNA based computing coupled with viral particles and enzyme based computing coupled with calcium signaling. Each of these solutions is designed for different applications and environments. For each of these approaches we demonstrate how elements from various layers in the communication stack are developed using the molecular computing mechanisms. Simulation results are also presented to illustrate the functionality and performance of each solution.
