Problems in game theory can be used for benchmark DNA computations. Large numbers of game strategies and chance events can be assembledinto finite state machines. These many machines perform, in parallel,distinct plays of a game. Strategies can be exposed to selection and breeding.The computational capabilities of DNA are matched with aspects of game theory, but the most interesting problems are yet to be treated.
