This paper presents a DNA based classification technique. It exploits the properties of the DNA as a quaternary logic with the advantages of better storage, better accuracy, and shorter time compared to binary logic. Several examples are employed to demonstrate using the DNA as a new classification method for differentiation between closely related objects such as boys and girls also we used neural network to demonstrate better accuracy and predict some objects for example boys. In addition the explanation of DNA computing, Boolean Circuit using DNA, Molecular Beacons, also DNA logic gates and some applications using DNA computing. Several programming tools are used to illustrate that using the MATLAB program.
