We propose in vitro algorithms using Dna strands to perform arithmetic and logical operations. The salient feature of our technique is that we use the same Dna structure to implement each algorithm, as well as to represent inputs and outputs. This allows to reuse output strands as input for others computations. Massive parallelism and great quantitative of Dna in solution provide a lot of advantages: among all the possibility to perform mathematical operations with huge binary numbers which are not representable in a conventional computer.

Abstract

We propose in vitro algorithms using Dna strands to perform arithmetic and logical operations. The salient feature of our technique is that we use the same Dna structure to implement each algorithm, as well as to represent inputs and outputs. This allows to reuse output strands as input for others computations. Massive parallelism and great quantitative of Dna in solution provide a lot of advantages: among all the possibility to perform mathematical operations with huge binary numbers which are not representable in a conventional computer.
