Information is now being stored in DNA! Is it time to say good bye to flash drives?
Present storage devices have limited lifespans, DNA storage, however may last for thousands of years. Instead of encoding information in letters and numbers, scientists from ETH Zurich “translated text into sequence of nucleotides.”
Don’t plan on this being available to everyone any time soon, though! The cost of using DNA as storage still remains very expensive.
DNA or Deoxyribonucleic acid is what carries genetic information in plant and animal cells.
What do you think about this?
