    THE NEXT-GENERATION IN DATA STORAGE? OUR DNA 




    SCARY... is no one allowed privacy or to be free anymore?




    One of the most recognizable “buzzwords” in science is DNA. It’s everywhere biologically and socially: It’s in our conversations and in our contemplations. It makes us who we are and, thanks to things like CRISPR gene editing, it is simultaneously allowing us to literally remake what we are. Interestingly enough, even computer scientists are warming up to DNA, looking at it for yet another application: Data storage.
