Imagine carrying out transactions without a wallet or smartphone?

New storage technologies need to be developed due to the ever increasing amounts of data we are producing. Nature has evolved DNA which stores genetic information for making proteins. DNA might also be used for other purposes.

The idea of storing digital data in DNA is not new but recent research from Harvard, European Bioinformatics Institute, ETH Zurich, University of Illinois  and Columbia University shows that progress in modern DNA manipulation methods could make DNA data storage possible.

There are significant challenges ahead but DNA could be the storage mechanism for the digital economy.
