Over the years we have seen an amazing relation between science and technology. Rising researches and inventions in science are directly related to technology. Medical inventions are the biggest example of technology and science. A person sitting at home can check his blood pressure , pulse rate , sugar level etc what will call this excellent thing? Yes the name is technology .This is how one can easily relate science and technology.
The evolution in the internet world has bought us up to many new internet trends and necessities. Trends are uncountable and varies from year to year , place to place . And these got us to some necessities which seems to be unavoidable by any web user or any computer proficient person. These are rising storage issues .Storage on personal drives , storage online gives us head ache when we talk about it or try to find any source for it and many of it we found are too expensive.
Can you Imagin yourself using DNA Instead of Hard Drive in Future?
Now if we relate again science and technology for the above the question , the answer is YES .We can use DNA for storing data in future. That is something over the cloud thing for most of us . But yes researches says it is possible to store in DNA strands any information any type of data.
“DNA is a very, very dense piece of information storage,It’s very light. It’s very small. The coding scheme that we used would work to a zetabyte level—a billion gigabytes, or half the total data being stored by all the world’s companies today. “—–said Ewan Birney, an expert of the EBI team.
Hard drives don’t hold a pinch of data if we compare to DNA storage ability. Our genetic code packs billions of gigabytes into a single gram. A mere milligram of the molecule can encode the complete thesauruses and have plenty of space to spare.
The researchers created software to make DNA files that converts the 1s and 0s of the digital realm into the genetic alphabet of DNA bases, labeled A, T, G and C. The program ensures that there are no repeated bases such as “AA” or “GG,” which lead to higher error rates when synthesizing and sequencing DNA.
