DNA computation is to use DNA molecules for information storing and processing. Challenges currently faced by DNA computation are (1) lack of theoretical computational models for applications, and (2) high error rate for implementation. This paper attempts to address these problems from genetic coding and mathematical modeling aspects. The proposed genetic coding approach provides a promising alternative to reduce high error rate. The mathematical formulation lays down groundwork for studying theoretical aspects of DNA computation.
