How DNA could store all the world's data

Andy Extance
2016 Nature  
Bacterial DNA~ kg WEIGHT OF DNA NEEDED TO STORE WORLD'S DATA Data density (bits per cm 3 ) 0.01-0.04 100 >10 10 16 <100 >100 10 19 <10 -10 Hard disk 3,000- 5,000 >10  ...  Using standard sequencing methods, there was no way to retrieve any one piece of data without retrieving all the data: every DNA string had to be read.  ...

Rebooting the Molecular Computer

Mark Peplow
2016 ACS Central Science  
Bits can be stored at such a high density that one kilogram of DNA could meet the world's entire storage needs, Zhirnov estimates.  ...  Although that is half the size of the human genome, data-storing DNA is built in short strands that are easier to synthesize.  ...

How much information is there in the "information society"?

Martin Hilbert
2012 Significance  
We know our brave new world is being transformed by data. But how much more of it is there than before? Martin Hilbert explores, and finds huge untapped capacity to process information.  ...  Social scientists from all disciplines have been relentless in pointing out that this has led us from the industrial to the information society, whereas information moved into the center of social, economic  ...  In 2007, the DNA in the 60 trillion cells of one single human body stores more information than all of our technological devices together (in both cases information is highly redundant).  ...

Encoding scheme for data storage and retrieval on DNA computers

Dolly Sharma, Ranjit Kumar, Mayuri Gupta, Tanisha Saxena
2020 IET Nanobiotechnology  
In the randomised simulation setup, it was observed that the proposed algorithm was able to correctly retrieve the stored data in our experiments about 94% of the time.  ...  In the situation, where redundancy was increased to 1, the authors were able to retrieve all the information correctly in the proposed experiments.  ...  In storing a string of size n, when we increased the redundancy to 1*n and further to 1.75*n in our experiments, we were able to correctly retrieve all the data stored.  ...

Where Is the Balance of Justice?

Ananda M. Chakrabarty
2011 BioScience  
The United Kingdom has the world's largest DNA database (the UK National DNA Database) and has fewer homicide cases (1.5 for every 100,000 people) than the United States (5.7 for every 100,000 people).  ...  The quality of the process of DNA analysis is also questioned, and poor work habits and a lack of technical skills, quality control, and accuracy in the interpretation of DNA data are noted.  ...

The World's Technological Capacity to Store, Communicate, and Compute Information

M. Hilbert, P. Lopez
2011 Science  
The world's capacity for bidirectional telecommunication grew at 28% per year, closely followed by the increase in globally stored information (23%).  ...  We estimate the world's technological capacity to store, communicate, and compute information, tracking 60 analog and digital technologies during the period from 1986 to 2007.  ...  The 2.4*10 21 bits stored by humanity in all of its technological devices in 2007 is approaching order of magnitude of the roughly 10 23 bits stored in the DNA of a human adult (37), but it is still minuscule  ...
