Bloomberg: DNA Method Using Illumina Sequencer May Enable Storage of All the World's Data Bloomberg
"U.K. scientists developed a way of storing data from a million compact discs in a gram of DNA, a method that could potentially house all the world’s digital information.
Computer files totaling 739 kilobytes of hard-disk storage were encoded and made into DNA that fit inside a test tube. The artificial DNA was sequenced using an Illumina Inc. (ILMN) machine and later reconstructed into the original files with 100 percent accuracy, according to Nick Goldman and Ewan Birney at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory-European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton, England. The research was published today in the journal Nature."
