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!
