Synthetic DNA as a next-generation digital storage solution
The increasing use of electronic media all over the world highlights the lack of effective data storage solutions. By 2025, the world's electronic data storage will reach 250 zettabytes. The EU-funded OLIGOARCHIVE project will research new technologies for intelligent DNA storage systems. The creation of a prototype system will allow the research of the whole cycle from encoding to the back-sequencing of data to DNA and back. The future goal is to use synthetic DNA as a digital storage medium due to its unusual characteristics: dense capacity, easy retrieval, stability and swiftness.
