  7. Abstract:
  8. In recent years, the biological evolution of molecular detection capabilities based on gene analysis has provided a reliable performance in the diagnosis of a disease before a symptom emerges. Human gene storage requires a large amount of computer memory (about 1.5 GB for each DNA) and the search for a specific pattern within it with electronic computers is time and power consuming. Optical computing uses light parallel processing capabilities to find the pattern in a digital field, which can be used to process large volumes of data in short time and low power consumption, while electronic computers process data in series with high power dissipation. According to the Optalysys report, the sequencing of the gene by using optical processing saves up to 95% of the power consumption per year. Due to the parallel nature of light, this optical computer is placed among the most powerful electronic supercomputers which is the aim of this research
