Abstract : Large collections of carefully constructed single stranded DNA sequences, called DNA Libraries, can be algorithmically filtered to encode solutions to numerical questions. To date, there has been no simple way to decode theses solutions. One possible decoding method is to further augment or embed the original encoded DNA library strands with synthetic reading strands made from the blueprints of classical superimposed codes. This can make the DNA output readable without complicated chemical separation or isolation protocols.
