English text:Look at Microsoft DNA Storage A
Microsoft is experimenting with synthetic DNA to achieve digital data storage, and recently to the genetics of startupsBioscience TwistBought ten million DNA.
It is reported that the Microsoft relatedDNA storageThe experiment was conducted in collaboration with University of Washington (of Washington University). The joint research team recently presented a description of the complete DNA archive storage system architecture described below.paper.
Details of the DNA storage principles, including how to improve reliability through coding, as well as several experiments that have been carried out, can refer to the PDF paper mentioned above.
According to the presentation of a twist bioscience. Compared with the traditional digital storage, based on DNA archiving technology provides two important advantages: longer life, the latest research data shows DNA data storage life of up to 2000; and the higher data density, one gram of DNA can save Chu Yizhao GB of data.
According to the introduction of Microsoft and University of Washington researchers, DNA storage is not a substitute for flash memory or hard disk:
We regard DNA storage as one of the most persistent deep storage systems, which can provide high density and durable archival storage solutions, as well as several hours or even days of access time.
The point of this idea is that the synthesis and ordering of DNA can be carried out in an arbitrary degree, so it can easily obtain the required reading and writing bandwidth.
