Pushing Moore’s law to making smaller and faster data storage is the technological grail.
Last month, scientists went further to store data in DNA – in the very building blocks of life!
In fact, 1 gram of DNA can store 1,000,000 TB – so much so, all data till date can be stored in just 20 grams of DNA.
If that is incredible, Microsoft recently bought 10 million strands of DNA to save data for 2000 years without damage.
Whoever thought nature and technology make strange bedfellows – evolution may well have sussed out the ultimate matrix.
