Abstract With the significant milestones achieved in our ability to build nano-devices and observe and record behavior at this scale, information theorists have an opportunity to potentially provide insights in a variety of scientific endeavors in concert with domain experts. For example, information theory has been able to provide fundamental limits and inspire algorithms for DNA sequencing. This special session brings together a mix of experts, from biology, biophysics, mathematics, signal and image processing, statistics and machine learning, and information theory to provide context and background for this emerging field such as fundamental limits and algorithms for molecular communication, coding and compression for genomic data, bioinformatics, sensing and control in biological systems, and information theoretic driven experimentation.
