Scientists create E.Coli bacteria that store and encrypt data

Posted on Friday, December 24 2010 @ 01:29:49 CET by


Engadget reports researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong have found a way to use E.Coli bacteria to store and encrypt data:
The technique involved placing data (in this case, The Declaration of Independence) in the DNA of bacterial cells, and can even harness site specific genetic recombination to encrypt the data. That said, the technology is still in its infancy: retrieving the info is "tedious and expensive," according to Cambridge University's Tim Middleton, and there is still the possibility that as organisms mutate, so will the data.
