Sunday, 14 April 2019, New York, NY – No matter what form of data storage you choose, there is always some limitation. Not just on the amount of data you can store, but also on how long that mode of storage can last. Paper decomposes, hard drives deteriorate, and even stones will eventually erode. But recently, novel technology has the potential to expand both of those capacities dramatically – much more than any currently existing form of data storage – and can revolutionise data storage in the process. That novel technology is one that we are already familiar with – DNA.
