obviously no expert here, but i'm assuming they encode information by rearranging the nucleotides in different 0,1 sequences - encrypted in the case of apdn - which can then be decoded via specially equipped devices or by way of processes carried out in a lab.
i seriously doubt anyone on the board, except maybe monadsense, has a deep technical understanding of the nuts and bolts of the process. you'll probably have to dig deeper in the internet or reach out to a university for a more detailed explanation.
having said that, does apdn have any presentations which include the info you're seeking? i'm too lazy to go any further than this...gl!
..... "Our IT roadmap is now paralleling the content-service capacity of DNA.”....
wow, this line has orwell spinning in his grave! perhaps they consulted with apoc on the wording of this comment? he demonstrates rare talent for cobbling together hyperbolic gibberish....gl!
here's something from an article "DNA used to encode a book and other digital information"
...."DNA is made up of nucleotides, and in theory at least each nucleotide can be used to encode two bits of data. This means that the density is a massive 1 million gigabits per cubic millimeter, and only four grams of DNA could theoretically store all the digital data created annually. This is much denser than digital storage media such as flash drives, and more stable, since the DNA sequences could be read thousands of years after they were encoded."
Bitzer owns more than 14% including warrants (when you aggregate personal/delabarta/abarta holdings).... and hayward's stake is over 20% (3.9mm shares) not including options and warrants.
just go to the 10k and 13g filings....
all this info is simply a reflection of past/recent private placements, including the nov secondary...
you might want to get your eyes checked, travelingman, if you think delabarta/abarta "looks like" an outside investor...gl!
actually, fletch, the "truth" in this case wasn't "elusive"... you guys were simply Blinded not by the "light" but rather by Greed, Arrogance and Animosity toward those who were REPEATEDLY pointing out for 2 years the conclusions at which you FINALLY arrived.
try some self-honesty instead of doing a "greenspan" who said no one could've predicted the financial crisis even though for a loooooooooooong stretch before it happened there were analysts continuously calling for action and raising alarm regarding the obvious housing bubble, ballooning and mispriced sup-prime derivative instruments and other distortions that had been emerging for quite some time.
can you guys ever just admit that you Willfully Ignored the Multitude of Red Flags - despite them being brought to your attention on a regular basis?
same goes for hayward's 13g filing...simply to reflect the changed ownership status stemming from his investment in the secondary + conversion of the $1mm promissory note/interest into shares + warrants.
the most recent 13G filing appears to stem from bitzer's past direct investments in apdn (going back to 2012, i believe) via private placements, including the most recent secondary offering, which probably triggered the need for this filing....
unless i'm mistaken, the filing just reflects what's already listed on the last 10k, which is that blitzer (via Delabarta/Abarta) owns the cited number of shares via past private placements, including the most recent secondary offering.
looks like Blitzer owns a big chuck of apdn via Abarta and Delabarta (which i suppose is a delaware entity in the abarta conglomerate) unless i'm mistaken...
Delabarta, Inc. 1,213,234 shares 6.95% percent of class
ABARTA, Inc. 1,213,234 shares 6.95% percent of class
John Bitzer joined the Board of Directors on August 10, 2011.
Mr. Bitzer is President & Chief Executive Officer of ABARTA, Inc., a private, third-generation family holding-company with operations in the soft drink beverages, newspaper publishing, oil and gas exploration and development, and ethnic frozen food industries.
looks like one of the board members - not an outside investor from what i can tell. go to the sec website to access the filing. gl
yes...we all know how you "buy the dips and sell the rips"...haha Indeed, you are a veritable Yahoo mb "trader extraordinaire"..lmao
more like you're the Dip who got Ripped by Brilliantly piling in at $9 and higher...doh!
and why do you persist in accusing me of claiming to be "brilliant"?!?...no such thing...rather i consider myself lucky to have made a lot of money on apdn the first go round...and Later just not Comically Inept like you, apoc, ibb, fletch and others for piling in at what were Obviously Grossly OverPriced levels...ESPECIALLY ONCE THE R/S AND SECONDARY WERE ANNOUNCED! OUCH!
no gman, my Pumping Potty Mouth amigo,...you shall remain forever and always the "Smug Oracle of APDN".....lol
hey - classy guy! you gonna Hightail it off the board - your big "set" and all - for months when the pps drops again? haha
btw - how's that $120/share ($2 pre-r/s) coming along that you Confidently and Authoritatively predicted for LAST YEAR? doh!
hey gman - why don't you attach a list of ALL your calls regarding the direction of apdn's pps? don't you think it would add to your credibility? haha
yahoo should require that you include a warning statement from the "Investor's Surgeon General" whenever you make a prediction of this sort...lmao
looks like plenty of other folks heartily concurred that 10 cents was OverPriced...40% off that handle despite all the "sensational" news....boy, this excitement is putting me to sleep....zzzzzz
please refer all questions regarding "delete" or "remove" to apoc. he has the most expertise of anyone in the forum on these matters....haha
