DNA has been the predominant information storage medium for biology and holds great promise as a next-generation high-density data medium in the digital era.

Researchers from Columbia University have demonstrated a new approach that can directly convert digital electronic signals into genetic data stored in the genomes of living cells. That could lead to a host of applications both for data storage and beyond, says Harris Wang, who led the research published in Nature Chemical Biology.
