Constructing Boolean Matrices with Restriction Enzymes as Row/Column Indicators in DNA Computing

Nordiana Rajaee, Kismet Hong Ping, Asrani Lit, Dyg Nur Salmi Dharmiza Awg Salleh, and Liang Yew Ng
Abstract—The massive parallel computing capabilities of DNA computing is extremely attractive for solving matrices problems with large data sets such as in network fault monitoring, data mining and social studies. However, the design and strategy to encode these problems into DNA sequences for computation still proves a hurdle as DNA computing is a wet-lab process highly dependent on bio-molecular tools. Various designs, strategy and tools give different advantages, limitations and affects the performance of the computation including extractions of results. In this paper, we study the utilization of restriction enzymes as row/column indicators for matrices problem with DNA computing. We model and propose steps to compute Boolean matrices and discuss highlights, drawbacks and applicability of the restriction enzymes during the encoding of the problems in DNA computing. In general, the utilization of restriction enzymes enables information to be tagged directly to the DNA sequences. However, due to the cutting reactions, the formed path cannot be utilized as weight or distance.

Index Terms—DNA computing, evolutionary computing, restriction enzymes, Boolean matrices.
