    As the quantity of digital data is doubling approximately every two years yet the ability to store this data is not keeping pace. There is a drastic need for a new storage medium that effectively and accurately stores data.

    The recent convergence of affordable DNA sequencing and the scalability of Twist Bioscience’s silicon-based DNA synthesis technique presents a new opportunity enabling the oldest life-form, DNA, to become a viable data storage option.
    Using DNA as an archival technology avoids two key limitations of traditional digital storage media: limited lifespan and low data density.

    DNA data storage could last up to 2,000 years without deterioration according to a recent presentation at the American Chemical Society.

    Mh..kama ni Trillion Gigabytes zipo kwenye kigram kimoja cha DNA, ina maana binadamu ana gramu ngapi za DNA? na ni ngapi zinaweza kuhifadhi data? na je, ina maana upo uwezekano wa mtu kuchip-iwa taarifa za kompyuta kwenye mwili wake, alafu akawa anaweza ku-access infos kama yule jamaa wa kwenye intelligence (2013)
