DNA Computing: A Potentially Faster Technology to Solve Complex Problems

DNA computing is a proposed alternative to the traditional way of computing, having the potential to solve complex problems in less time. Also called molecular computing, this new, developing technology consists of the use of DNA strands in solution to store and process data instead of using the silicon based micro-chips. The process of solving a particular NP-complete problem, such as the knap-sack problem, will be carefully analyzed as it is approached through the simulation of these two technologies.
