DNA for Storage

DNA Capable Of Storing Memory For 2,000 Years

Edwin Kee | August 19, 2015

...A team of scientists did present at the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, laying claim to their success in making use of genetic material to store information safely, and that information will have a shelf life of at least 2,000 years, now how about that? DNA happens to be the data storage molecule of biology, where the human genome itself is said to carry approximately 750MB of raw information into a cell nucleus that measures a few micrometers across.
