“According to the pair’s calculations — detailed in the journal Science — they were able to store 215 petabytes of data in a single gram of DNA, a new record.
“We believe this is the highest-density data-storage device ever created,” Erlich, a computer science professor at Columbia Engineering, said in a news release.
The scientists also proved the DNA strands — and the embedded files — could be infinitely replicated through a polymerase chain reaction without creating any coding errors.”
What Is Stored In Our ‘Junk’ DNA, Has Anyone Looked: If scientists looked and found information in our junk DNA then random evolution goes down in flames. If they find something then we are in God territory or at least alien DNA engineering. Either outcome would be a game changer. We are not alone.
