In this week's Science, two researchers from the New York Genome Center describe a new method for storing digital data in small amounts of DNA. Called DNA Fountain, the approach relies on coding technique whereby information is randomly packaged and then reassembled in order. Specifically, more oligonucleotides are encoded to with information than required, and high-quality oligonucleotides are prioritized over damaged ones to minimize error.
