Did you know…
DNA has the capacity to store all the information ever generated on Facebook in a small tube of DNA.
More than 200 petabytes (1 petabyte = 1 million gigabytes) of data can be stored per gram of DNA and remain stable for 100,000+ years.
While a typical server has a useful lifespan of three to five years, under ideal storage conditions, DNA remains readable for about 1.5 million years
DNA represents the ideal data storage medium
Here's how it works
ENCODING: Encode a binary digital file into a DNA data file
SYNTHESIS: Synthesize the DNA data file
STORAGE: Store millions of DNA data files in one tube of DNA
RETRIEVAL: Pull only the DNA data file you need out of the tube
DECODING: Read the DNA data file and decode the binary digital file
Successful results have already demonstrated with our prototype system
