Common-Crossing and Persistent Splicing Systems

Fariba Karimi, Nor Haniza Sarmin, Fong Wan Heng


DNA computing is an emerging field that includes the combination of some concepts from biology and computation. Splicing system is a mathematical model in DNA computing which was first introduced by Head in 1987. This model is defined under the framework of formal language theory which is a subcategory of theoretical computer science and applied discrete mathematics. Splicing system stimulates the behavior of restriction enzymes on DNA molecules. In this paper, the concept of Common-Crossing Splicing System is introduced and its properties are investigated. Also, the relation between this splicing system and persistent splicing system is studied.
