A breakthrough in DNA research will open up new possibilities for long-term information storage

New technology developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory allows you to encrypt any

digital files into DNA code. This discovery will bring us closer to translating the necessary information into a DNA storage format.

Details

As the scientists themselves say from the NationalLos Alamos Laboratories, "our technology translates information from the language of computers into the language of biology." Los Alamos is part of the MIST program - Molecular Storage of Information. Their goal is to develop a repository of information based on DNA that can write 1 terabyte and read 10 terabytes in 24 hours. In this case, the cost of storage should not exceed $ 1,000.
