Description: The research paper DNA Computing Seminar Vs Silicon Chip Seminar Report speaks about the differences between traditional computing using Silicon Microprocessor as the storage device and DNA Computing that uses the DNA recombination technique.
DNA Computing that works on the principle of nucleotide sequencing has potential to increase the storage potential of any information/ data over a billion times. The breakthrough research was first conducted in the labs of University of Southern California when Professor Adleman first thought of nucleotide sequencing to replace the traditional binary 1’s and 2’s of traditional computing. He also used a primitive algorithm to find solutions to the famous Hamilton Pathway problem wherein the shortest distance to be traveled through seven cities was to be determined for a salesman.
Adleman mixed the DNA strands to get a recombinant nucleotide sequencing each sequence was unique and represented distance between two cities. And shortest distance at that. The only problem was the unnecessary intermediary chemical reactions which Adleman meticulously eliminated. This research has opened vistas for DNA Computing which has become a buzz word ever since.
The silicon microprocessor can store data but in comparison with DNA Computing it is just a fragment of information that it can store. The storage capacity of DNA is suggested to be almost unlimited and in the future the scientists predict that silicon chip will be completely replaced with DNA.
Conclusion: DNA Computing is not as easy as it sounds to be. The tear drop sized DNA Computer has to be understood and welcomed. The test tube method of storing information and the type of lab environment that facilitates DNA Computing could be intimidating. There are many potential hiccups as of now. There could be many unnecessary chemical reactions in DNA Computing which need to meticulously removed by the subject experts. The manual assistance required for DNA Computing makes it a hard dream to realize.
