DNA storage

  • Human DNA can provide large-capacity data storage

    Columbia University’s Yaniv Erlich and New York Genome Center’s Dina Zielinski have found a way to increase information storage in DNA by 60 percent, using an algorithm that’s commonly used to stream video on a cell phone. DNA has the potential to provide large-capacity information storage. However, current methods...
  • Second code hiding within DNA

    Scientists found that there is a second code hiding within a DNA. This hidden code reveals information that will affect the way scientists read the DNA-kept instructions and the findings are leading to speculation that it could forever change how doctors uncover, diagnose and treat various diseases.   Scientists...
  • Four grams of DNA could store the digital data humankind creates in one year

    Using next-generation sequencing technology and a novel strategy to encode 1,000 times the largest data size previously achieved in DNA, a Harvard geneticist encodes his book in life’s language Although George Church’s next book doesn’t hit the shelves until Oct. 2, it has already passed an enviable benchmark: 70...
