We are developing methods for reliable and efficient encoding, random access,
and decoding of digital data stored in DNA. We are also developing a fully
automated whole system architecture.
As part of this research we have been encoded many cool data items such as a
video from the OK Go band, books from Project Gutenberg, the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights, archival quality songs from the UNESCO Heritage
Montreux Jazz Archive, etc. Please let us know if you
have ideas for interesting and relevant data items!

Our paper demonstrating an end-to-end automated system for DNA data storage (including synthesis and sequencing!) appeared in Scientific Reports.

We put together a paper about our vision of
a hybrid molecular-electronic computing platform
that combines traditional silicon computing with DNA data storage and computing.
It’s in the January 2019 issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE.
Our paper detailing our adventure with large-scale DNA data storage was just
published in Nature Biotechnology. Check it out!
Update: We’re on the cover!

We just launched our #MemoriesInDNA project! Submit a photo to help us
understand what sorts of images people want to remember. We’ll take a sample of
these images and archive them into DNA. Check out the website for more!
