Could your next USB actually need watering and sunlight and yet last for a millennium? Yes, if Twist Bioscience have anything to do with it. Although not technically a start-up at six years in and listed, one of their developments is worth a look, as the sector is seeing the same reduction in costs that saw computing power boom As Twist put it, “If there was an opportunity where you could put a copy of your DNA in a hard drive that would last for 1000 years for $50, that would really be the ultimate backup for your data.” https://twistbioscience.com/products/storage
