Abstract

The DNA sequence design is a crucial problem in DNA based computations. In the literature there is evidence that many input sets should not be used for real DNA computations. This approach might lead to high probabilities of incurring in biological faults which make computations unsafe. In this paper we present an intermediate tool between strand logical design and practical computations, that allows scientists to approach in-vitro computations reducing the probability of biological mistakes in the phase of theoretical input design for practical computations.
