Magnetic hard drives, which are now used to store computer data, can take up a lot of room and must be replaced over time. Huge amounts of data may be archived in small molecules if life’s preferred storage medium to back up our valuable data is used. The method works by creating one-of-a-kind DNA strands one building block at a time. The bases – four unique chemical components that make up the DNA molecule – are these building blocks. The error rate of DNA storage is higher than that of standard hard drive storage. GTRI researchers have devised a method of detecting and fixing these inaccuracies in partnership with the University of Washington.
