Have you ever experienced the hopelessness of being left without storage space on your phone? Or you may have wanted to back up all of the files that your company created, but cloud services were too expensive and of low capacity? Or maybe you’re an ex-politician whose secret files leaked? Fret no more! DNAdrive aims to create a safer and more extensive digital data storage alternative for all of your archiving needs. By exploiting the immune system of a certain bacterial strain, we’ve managed to write information in bacterial genome, encoded by our home-cooked conversion algorithm. Besides its uncountable advantages, 1g of DNA would have a capacity equivalent to 450 million 1TB hard disks, all at a maintenance rate of around 10€ a year. This is the beginning of a new era in data storage.
