( To simplify the discussion here, details of the 3′ versus 5′ ends of the DNA molecules have been omitted.) For this particular problem, only one Hamiltonian path exists, and it passes through Atlanta, Boston, Chicago and Detroit in that order. In the computation, this path is represented by GCAGTCGEND GACTGGGCTATGTCCGA, a DNA sequence of length 24. Shown at the START left is the map with seven cities and 14 nonstop flights used in the —L.M.A. actual experiment.
