What it does

Starting with a specification of a DNA nanodevice, i.e. something like this, CircDesigNA attempts to assign DNA sequence to the parts of the device in a way that satisfies the user's design constraints and minimizes undesired sequence interactions.

CircDesigNA employs a genetic algorithm to optimize an objective function which scores a sequence assignment on specificity of interactions. This objective function is described as follows: CircDesigNA Score Function
