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.
