DNA computers - a new world of data processing

Data processing with DNA-based systems offers unprecedented possibilities. When using DNA for data storage, the data density is many thousand times higher than with digital media: 1 bit per nm ^ 3, 1g DNA> 100 petabytes (10 ^ 17 bytes).

Already today, DNA control methods can be used to build sequence controls for DNA-driven processes for synthetic biology systems. They are used, for example, to calculate complex problems with many possible solutions (e.g. coding and decoding).


Coding of the word GIP as a DNA sequence (Turing alphabet)

The bases T, G, C and A of a DNA form the basis for coding life.
With T = 3, G = 2, C = 1, A = 0 and a conversion of the ASCII code into a 4-number system (quaternary system) we get:

G ≡ 71=1*43+0*42+1*41+3*40 ≡ 1013 ≡ CACT
I ≡ 73= 64+0*16+2*4+1 =≡ 1021 ≡ CAGC
P ≡ 80 = 64+16+0*4+0*1 ≡ 1100 ≡ CCAA


We closely cooperate with Dr. Karl-Heinz Friedrich (apl. Prof. for Biochemics at University of Jena). His lecture at the Xyna Conference 2019 "Synthetic Biology: A Quantum Leap That Changes the World?" gave the impetus to initiate a research cooperation in the field of DNA computing.
