The universal quantum computation on decoherence-free subspaces and subsystems (DFS) was studied using physically relevant interactions. Necessary and sufficient conditions were derived for the existence of decoherence-free subsystems in the Markovian regime. The dual role of DFS as quantum error correcting codes (QECC) was examined by developing a stablizer formalism for DFSs. QECC can correct small errors at the price of fast gates. Results showed that the single two body interaction (exchange) is sufficient to generate universal quantum computation fault-tolerantly.
