A scheme is presented to perform universal quantum computation using global addressing techniques as applied to a physical system of endohedrally doped fullerenes. The nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR) pulses required to execute the basic cellular automaton operation are deduced. A rough figure of merit for the number of gate operations per decoherence time is obtained. It is found that this figure of merit compares well with other physical quantum computer proposals.
