Digital communication has become an essential part of infrastructure nowadays and also lots of applications are internet based. So the communication made must be secret. Techniques such as cryptography are being used on a large scale for transmitting information secretly. DNA cryptography, a new branch of cryptography utilizes DNA as an informational and computational carrier with the aid of molecular techniques. It is relatively a new field which emerged after the disclosure of computational ability of DNA. DNA cryptography gains attention due to the vast storage capacity of DNA, which is the basic computational tool of this field.
