You’ll need to upgrade your hard drive to 4Mb before running this software.
Hard drives, which are increasingly often used to store computer data, can take up a lot of space and must be replaced over time. If we employed life’s chosen storage medium to back up our valuable data, we could store vast amounts of data in small molecules. The data, according to scientists, would last for thousands of years. One building block at a time, the process creates one-of-a-kind DNA strands. These are the bases, which are four distinct chemical components that make up the DNA molecule. DNA storage has a higher error rate than regular hard drive storage. In collaboration with the University of Washington, GTRI researchers developed a mechanism for detecting and correcting these mistakes.
