DNA Hard Drive Can Preserve Data for a Few Millennia

With inspiration from fossilized bones, scientists have discovered an approach to preservation of data in the form of DNA enclosed in silica. Being released in the recent edition of Angewandte Chemie, such discovery findings could allow digital information to be permanently preserved, or for millions of years. While ancient scrolls […]
