What do you think of digital information being able to be stored in DNA
Hi this is my first post so i hope its ok :).
I was wondering what are others opinions on this ? ?
THIS IS THE LINK LOOK AT THIS WONDERFUL LINK
Have you ever wanted to be a human usb ? ?
Personally i don't see where this could go if they were able to start storing large amounts of data what would they store ? why ?
What are you're thoughts on this ?
Just thought it was interesting and i have not seen anyone's else's opinion on this yet.
If i did anything wrong here i do apolegise again its my first post.

It is just another step in storage technology. 25 years ago, floppy disks with 1.4 MB were state of the art, and hard drives had less than 100 MB I think. Today, you can store ~30GB in a fraction of their volume (SD cards), and 1 TB is a usual size for hard drives.
You probably don't need a DNA storage for your home computer (if you read this in 2030: Feel free to laugh), but research experiments, search engines, and some companies can easily generate thousands of TB of data.
Edit: This plot suggest an increase in storage capacity by a factor of 10 every 5 years.
