The paper introduces error-correcting Petri nets, an algebraic methodology for designing synthetic biologic systems with monitoring capabilities. Linear error-correcting codes are used to extend the net’s structure in a way that allows for the algebraic detection and correction of non-reachable net markings. The presented methodology is based on modulo-p Hamming codes—which are optimal for the modulo-p correction of single errors—but also works with any other linear error-correcting code.
