Storing Digital Binary Data into Cellular DNA demonstrates how current digital information storage systems have short longevity and limited capacity, also pointing out that their production and consumption of data exceeds supply. Author Rocky Termanini explains the DNA system and how it encodes vast amounts of data, then presents information on the emergence of DNA as a storage technology for the ever-growing stream of data being produced and consumed. The book will be of interest to a range of readers looking to understand this game-changing technology, including researchers in computer science, biomedical engineers, geneticists, physicians, clinicians, law enforcement and cybersecurity experts.
