DNA is a reliable biomolecule with which to build molecular computation systems. In particular, DNA logic circuits (diffusion-based) have shown good performance regarding scalability and correctness of computation. However, previous architectures of DNA logic circuits have two limitations. First, the speed of computation is slow, often requiring hours to compute a simple function. Second, the circuits are of high complexity regarding the number of DNA strands. Here, we introduce an architecture…
