We propose a model for representing and manipulating binary numbers on a DNA-chip which allows parallel execution of simple arithmetic. As an example we describe how addition of binary numbers can be done. In this example the number of steps is independent of the size (bits) of the numbers; however, the time for some biochemical reactions is still large and will increase with the size of the sequences to be assembled.
