Topics from this paper

Retrieval Efficiency of DNA-Based Databases of Digital Signals
This paper presents a mathematical framework to simulate single-query and parallel-query scenarios, and to estimate hybridization efficiency, and defines a DNA SNR measure to assess the performance of the DNA-based retrieval scheme in terms of database size and source statistics.

Using information theory, a model and methods for quantifying the complexity of any product that is representable as an algorithm are introduced and applied to a historical dataset of digital signal processing firms and product introductions.


How can DNA computing be applied to digital signal processing?
This article offers the signal processing community some future directions regarding the unexplored area of research in biocomputing technology.
Scenarios for Molecular-Level Signal Processing
This work has proposed two new paradigms to process and transmit information in molecular circuits that can defeat the heat dissipation problem, based on the characteristic vibrational behavior of molecules and clusters and the molecular electrostatic potentials.
On Designing DNA Databases for the Storage and Retrieval of Digital Signals
This paper proposes a new way of constructing the database elements such that a short-term database can be converted into a long term one and vice versa without the need for a re-synthesis, which improves efficiency and reduces the cost of a long- term database.
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.
Taking pictures with E. coli: signal processing using synthetic biology
To demonstrate the spatial control that can be accomplished with lightregulated gene expression, the researchers developed a light-generated photograph that was developed by connecting the phosphorylation state of EnvZ to the expression of an enzyme.
Engineering Entropy-Driven Reactions and Networks Catalyzed by DNA
A design strategy is introduced that allows a specified input oligonucleotide to catalyze the release of a specified output oligon nucleotide, which in turn can serve as a catalyst for other reactions, which provides an amplifying circuit element that is simple, fast, modular, composable, and robust.
Algorithmic Self-Assembly of DNA Sierpinski Triangles
This work reports the molecular realization, using two-dimensional self-assembly of DNA tiles, of a cellular automaton whose update rule computes the binary function XOR and thus fabricates a fractal pattern—a Sierpinski triangle—as it grows.
