Formal chemical reaction networks (CRNs) provide an elegant standard language for describing and analyzing well-mixed systems of interacting particles. Taking a complementary approach, I will discuss recent work showing how CRNs can be used prescriptively, rather than descriptively, as a programming language for creating complex nucleic acid systems.
