Sequenceable Event Recorders

  title={Sequenceable Event Recorders},
  author={Luca Cardelli},
With recent high-throughput technology we can synthesize large heterogeneous collections of DNA structures, and also read them all out precisely in a single procedure. Can we use these tools, not only to do things faster, but also to devise new techniques and algorithms? In this paper we examine some DNA algorithms that assume high-throughput synthesis and sequencing. We record the order in which # events occur, using # redundant detectors but only # distinct DNA domains, and (after sequencing… 



Two-Domain DNA Strand Displacement

This work investigates the computing power of a restricted class of DNA strand displacement structures: those that are made of double strands with nicks (interruptions) in the top strand, and imposes restrictions on the single strands they interact with.

Recording transcriptional histories using Record-seq

The experimental procedures of the Record-seq workflow as well as subsequent data analysis are described, which enable transcriptional recording by CRISPR spacer acquisition from RNA and enables transcript quantification and associated analyses.

High-throughput sequencing technologies.

Synthetic DNA Synthesis and Assembly: Putting the Synthetic in Synthetic Biology.

The development of lower-cost methods to produce high-quality synthetic DNA will allow for the exploration of larger biological hypotheses by lowering the cost of use and help to close the DNA read-write cost gap.

Towards Domain-Based Sequence Design for DNA Strand Displacement Reactions

Considerations for domain-based sequence design are discussed, and heuristics are presented for the sequence design of domains based on a randomized algorithm.

Enzyme-Free Nucleic Acid Logic Circuits

The design and experimental implementation of DNA-based digital logic circuits using single-stranded nucleic acids as inputs and outputs are reported, suggesting applications in biotechnology and bioengineering.

Configuring robust DNA strand displacement reactions for in situ molecular analyses

It is shown that the efficiency of marker erasing via strand displacement can be limited by non-toehold mediated stand exchange processes that lower the rates that fluorophore-bearing strands diffuse out of cells.

CRISPR-Cas encoding of a digital movie into the genomes of a population of living bacteria

The underlying principles of the CRISPR–Cas adaptation system are uncovered, including sequence determinants of spacer acquisition that are relevant for understanding both the basic biology of bacterial adaptation and its technological applications.

[Application of Array-Based Oligonucleotides for Synthesis of Genetic Designs].

These oligonucleotides are mainly used to design large libraries of various nucleotide sequences, which are applied to study protein-nucleic acid interactions, splicing, transcription, translation, and other regulatory processes in mammalian, yeast, and bacterial systems.

DNA as a universal substrate for chemical kinetics

It is shown that systems of DNA molecules can be constructed that closely approximate the dynamic behavior of arbitrary systems of coupled chemical reactions, by using strand displacement reactions as a primitive, and systems implementing feedback digital logic and algorithmic behavior are illustrated.
