Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid, or popularly known as DNA, continues to inspire many theoretical computing models, such as sticker systems and Watson-Crick grammars. Sticker systems are the abstraction of ligation processes performed on DNA, while Watson-Crick grammars are models motivated from Watson-Crick finite automata and Chomsky grammars. Both of these theoretical models benefit from the Watson-Crick complementarity rule. In this paper, we establish the results on the relationship between Watson-Crick linear grammars, which is included in Watson-Crick context-free grammars, and sticker systems. We show that the family of arbitrary sticker languages, generated from arbitrary sticker systems, is included in the family of Watson-Crick linear languages, generated from Watson-Crick linear grammars.
