DNA-Based Active Logic Design and its Implications
DNA computing is an emerging field of research in which biochemistry and molecular biology elements are utilized to complete computational processes performed by traditional silicon-based technologies. Current DNA-based circuits are non-homogenous, consisting of discrete combinatorial gates with corresponding static processing abilities. This paper focuses on further developing DNA-based methodologies to mimic digital data manipulation. Homogenous logic design principles are introduced, laying the foundations of dynamic processing whereby information can be parsed through a digital circuit comprised of DNA - based logic gates. The ultimate aim would be to facilitate shift-and-add calculation.
