Recently, significant progress and far-reaching discoveries have been made in nanobioelectronics and nanoneuroscience that radically different from conventional electronics and neuroscience concepts. Novel fundamental theories have been emerged striving to coherently understand various aspects of information processing, computing, memory, and information propagation at the cell and brain levels. This paper examines the hypothesis that biomolecules may be utilized for quantum computation. Superpositions of dipole states of base pairs consisting of purine (A and G) and pyrimidine (C and T) nitrogenous complexes may play the role of qubits, and quantum communication (coherence, entanglement, non-locality) occur in the π-region of the DNA molecule. This concept is examined in this paper with possible application in biomolecular nanobiocomputers.
