Abstract

In this paper a simulation of single query searches in very large DNA-based databases that are capable of storing and retrieving digital signals is presented. Similarly to the digital domain, a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) measure to assess the performance of the DNA-based retrieval scheme in terms of database size and source statistics is defined. With approximations, it is shown that the SNR of any finite size DNA-based database is upper bounded by the SNR of an infinitely large one with the same source distribution. Computer simulations are presented to validate the theoretical outcomes.
