A major goal in nanotechnology is the find useful forms of DNA computation.

We believe an enzyme-free, DNA toehold exchange catalyzed system that preforms the computation of “counting” can be useful in various fields of biotechnology. Counting, by our definition, relies on two main principles. The first is the input that is being counted must be the same with each pulse and the second is the output of the counter must be independent of the input quantity or concentration. That is, regardless of the amount of input used, the counter must only reach completion after the specified number of counts, or pulses.

One major goal of nanotechnology is to control chemical
 
reactions pera logical specification. Nano-biological devices have
 
been"programmed" to function as AND / OR gates, timed oscillators,
 
motors,and to have other forms of controlled responses to their
 
environment.We have engineered a prototype of an enzyme-free DNA
 
circuit based on toeholdexchange to 'count' signal pulses
 
corresponding to additions of adefined chemical. Counting, by our
 
definition, needs to meet twocriteria: First, the input being being
 
counted is a single chemicalused for each pulse. Second, the counter
 
should output an ON signalonly when some fixed number of pulses have
 
been encountered,regardless of the amount of input added in any pulse,
 
and the strengthof the ON signal should be independent of the amount
 
of input addedeach pulse. The molecular basis of our prototype
 
count-to-two unitincludes (1) a time-delayedsignal transduction series
 
coupled to an AND gate and (2) a mechanism forconstant input
 
degradation.  In theory such units can be connected seriallyto make a
 
counter that is capable to count to any pre-specified finitenumber.

Objective

Counting Events with a DNA Processor

A major goal in nanotechnology is the find useful forms of DNA computation. This broad definition includes amplifiers, logic gates, oscillators, structural manipulations, and many more forms of controlled responses. We believe an enzyme-free, DNA toehold exchange catalyzed system that preforms the computation of “counting” can be useful in various fields of biotechnology. Counting, by our definition, relies on two main principles. The first is the input that is being counted must be the same with each pulse and the second is the output of the counter must be independent of the input quantity or concentration. That is, regardless of the amount of input used, the counter must only reach completion after the specified number of counts, or pulses.
