There has been an ascending growth in the capacity of information being generated. The increased production of data in turn has put forward other challenges as well thus, and there is the need to store this information and not only to store it but also to retain it for a prolonged time period. The reliance on DNA as a dense storage medium with high storage capacity and its ability to withstand extreme environmental conditions has increased over the past few years. There have been developments… 
DNA; Digital Data Storage Device
TLDR
The method put forward by Nick Goldman and Evan Birney has so many advantages over the other methods, they had converted data in the binary form into ternary by using improved Huffman coding of base 3.
DNA and the Digital Data Storage
TLDR
The application of DNA data storage is limited due to such disadvantages as high cost, time-consuming, lack of random access ability, however, the seen advances in DNA sequencing technology positively shine the future of DNA digital data storage.

TLDR
It is an explosive era of the big digital data with an exponential growth rate and scientists realized that, to store these huge data is a mission impossible with current technologies and is becoming a server headache for people from academy, industry and almost all other fields in this digital universe.
A high storage density strategy for digital information based on synthetic DNA
TLDR
The proposed strategy introduces quaternary Huffman coding to compress the binary stream of an original file before it is converted into a DNA sequence and can gain a very high compression ratio for files with a non-uniform probability distribution of the source.
Digital information storage on DNA in living organisms
TLDR
From this study, it is found that digital information can be stored and stably transmitted on DNA within these living organisms.
A Review on Info-Convergence Nanohybrid System
TLDR
This review has highlighted the potential of smart code system with Nano-Bio-Info-Cogno (NBIC) convergence technology through the recently published case study of Avatar DNA nanohybrid system with smart phone.
K-Means Multi-Verse Optimizer (KMVO) Algorithm to Construct DNA Storage Codes
TLDR
A K-means Multi-Verse Optimizer (KMVO) algorithm is proposed to construct a better code boundary than the previous Multi-Serious Optimizer algorithm that satisfies the above constraints, and can store information more efficiently over a given length, increasing storage utilization.
Info-Convergence Ceramic Nanosystems
TLDR
The review highlights the ceramic nanohybrid bio code and ceramic nanoparticle optical code for applications in tracking-and-traceability management, nano-forensics, anticounterfeiting, and even communication, as well as the four steps of encoding, encrypting, decrypting, and decoding for the desired applications.
Single-Molecule Counting of Nucleotide by Electrophoresis with Nanochannel-Integrated Nano-Gap Devices
TLDR
This single-molecule electrical measurement of deoxyguanosine monophosphate was performed and it was found that the throughput was significantly improved by nearly an order of magnitude compared to that without electrophoresis, and the long-duration signals that could interfere with discrimination were significantly reduced.

A DNA-Based Archival Storage System
TLDR
An architecture for a DNA-based archival storage system is presented, structured as a key-value store, and leverages common biochemical techniques to provide random access, and a new encoding scheme is proposed that offers controllable redundancy, trading off reliability for density.

DNA-based Cryptography
TLDR
Some procedures for DNA-based cryptography based on one-time-pads that are in principle unbreakable are presented, and a class of DNA steganography systems, which secretly tag the input DNA and then hide it within collections of other DNA are examined.
Some possible codes for encrypting data in DNA
TLDR
The Huffman code was devised using Huffman's algorithm for constructing economical codes, and would be useful for routine, short-term storage purposes, supposing – not unrealistically – that very fast methods for assembling and sequencing large pieces of DNA can be developed.
