Paper Abstract

This paper describes fundamental logical and arithmetical calculations carried out on the molecular level using DNA solution. In our approach specific mapping of logic signals into DNA strands is assumed. Appropriate DNA sequences are applied to represent both logic states. The design and operation of a molecular flow-cell has been described in detail. The XOR logic gate is considered. The implementation of a Moore's automaton realizing for sample graph has been presented, where growing size of input and output alphabet as well as number of states results only in increasing number of components while the design methodology remains the same. It has been mentioned that lab-on-a-chip type devices that allow automation of sequential DNA processing can realize the functionality of molecular flow-cell. Such flow-cells may play an important role in construction of future computing hardware.
