2D Barcode for DNA Encoding

Elena Purcaru, Cristian Toma

Abstract


The paper presents a solution for endcoding/decoding DNA information in 2D barcodes. First part focuses on the existing techniques and symbologies in 2D barcodes field. The 2D barcode PDF417 is presented as starting point. The adaptations and optimizations on PDF417 and on DataMatrix lead to the solution – DNA2DBC – DeoxyriboNucleic Acid Two Dimensional Barcode. The second part shows the DNA2DBC encoding/decoding process step by step. In conclusions are enumerated the most important features of 2D barcode implementation for DNA.

Keywords


DNA - Deoxyribonucleic acid, 2D barcode, DNA2DBC, PDF417, code symbology
