This paper presents DNA algorithms for five relational algebra database operations, selection, projection, union, set difference, and Cartesian product on so-called DNA databases. A DNA database is a database where data records are encoded as DNA strands. The five operations mentioned before are fundamental in the field of databases and perform most of the data retrieval operations on current databases.
