DNA Fountain enables a robust and efficient storage architecture

  title={DNA Fountain enables a robust and efficient storage architecture},
  author={Yaniv Erlich and Dina Zielinski},
DNA is an attractive medium to store digital information. Here we report a storage strategy, called DNA Fountain, that is highly robust and approaches the information capacity per nucleotide. Using our approach, we stored a full computer operating system, movie, and other files with a total of 2.14 × 106 bytes in DNA oligonucleotides and perfectly retrieved the information from a sequencing coverage equivalent to a single tile of Illumina sequencing. We also tested a process that can allow 2.18… CONTINUE READING
