DNA computing, or, more generally, molecular computing, is an exciting fast developing interdisciplinary area. Research in this area concerns theory, experiments, and applications of DNA computing. In this paper, we demonstrate the theoretical developments by discussing a number of selected topics. We also give an introduction to the basic structure of DNA and the basic DNA processing tools.
