How about we talk abit about
How do birds KNOW were to fly when migrating....
And there are numerous other situations were
we could be talking about that kind of memory.
What if "junk dna" isnt really junk... But the
collective memory of long lost past....
Can you fathom how much information our DNA can be storing?
However clever the thinking around DNA is, and it is very smart stuff, the method is basically a more of the same progression down the clay tablet / paper / disc / SSD stream.
Corporates, and Corporate Managers, are increasingly dependant on processing Big Data, so the attraction of pursuing a cheaper mrdium is clear.
...and perfectly retrieved the information from a sequencing coverage equivalent to a single tile of Illumina sequencing. We also tested a process that can allow 2.18 × 1015 retrievals using the original DNA sample and were able to perfectly decode the data. Finally, we explored the limit of our architecture in terms of bytes per molecule and obtained a perfect retrieval from a density of 215 petabytes per gram of DNA, orders of magnitude higher than previous reports.
...Moving forward, practical implementation of DNA storage will require addressing the high cost of DNA , which was $3500/Mbyte in this study. ...more cost-effective synthesis, DNA might become an economically viable solution for long-term, high-latency storage.
