DNA Storage–An Approach to Adapt to Life’s Information-Storage System for Handling Enormous Data
DNA is rising as the next big thing in the next-generation storage technologies owing to its high scalability and cost-efficiency. DNA storage is the process of encoding and decoding binary data onto and from synthesized strands of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). In nature, DNA molecules contain genetic blueprints for living cells and organisms, which is now being studied by global researchers and scientists to store massive amounts of the world’s information. The market is anticipated to witness huge growth during the upcoming years.
In July 2018, researchers at the Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) published a DNA synthesis method using ter
