DNA storage poised to transform digital business by 2024
The Greater Bay Area Science Forum convened its master lecture series on digital data in both Guangzhou and Hong Kong on July 31.
Dr Fan Chunhai, a distinguished academician from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, shared an interesting fact at the event: by 2020, global data had reached 44 Zettabytes (ZB). Remarkably, through DNA storage, all this data could be stored in a mere 200 kilograms of synthesized DNA.
Fan anticipates that by 2024, nearly 30 percent of digital businesses from around the world may adopt this revolutionary DNA storage technique.
