It already contains coded messages
Experiments on E coli bacteria already done
Stored data will be more safe for many generations
Ranchi: DNA chains contain billions of trillions of messages that indicate the
person, it is found that he has acquired something in his DNA from his
ancestors. At the same time, his in-depth analysis also reveals the merits and
demerits of its internal structure. With the help of this DNA link, work is on to
improve many types of genetic diseases. In this sequence, scientists are now
doing research on preserving data of common use in living bacteria by this
method. Scientists believe that when there are so many codes encoded in the
DNA chains of a life, they can certainly play a major role in securing other
messages. It is being worked out. The work of storing this data in the living
bacteria prepared in the laboratory is in progress. In the world of information
technology, it is considered a very useful research. Generally speaking of
computers, due to the changes in the constantly changing technologies, data-
keeping equipment are changing. The floppy drives used to hold data in the
computers of the first era are now history due to the change in information
technology. New tools are being invented to keep data in every round.
Currently, pen drives and portable hard disks are popular examples. Now
researchers believe that if such data is preserved in a living bacteria, then it
will be safe and classically available for a long time.
DNA Chains will carry it to next generation
figures along with it, which can be retrieved at any time according to need. It is
estimated that with the addition of Bacteria, these figures will also reach these
figures automatically on their own. Soy Shipman, a bio engineer at the
University of California at Gladstone Institute and San Francisco, says it could
look like a business project in the future.
Supporters argue that the density of any DNA chain is one thousand times
greater than any existing hard disk. Therefore it can preserve more data.
Suppose for example, ten cinema can be stored in DNA equal to one particle of
salt. It can be understood that the work of reducing the size of devices in data
retention will also be completed. Also, writing and retracting the data kept in it
will prove to be much cheaper and time saving. The use of technology for this
will also make the data more space consuming.
Research for this in the initial stage is promising
The corresponding zero and one data can be stored on adenine, guanine,
crytosine and Thaiman of any living cell. Due to their design of DNA chain,
they will be able to store more data in less space. When this data is written to a
bacteria, it will naturally provide this data to the next generation. In 2017,
Columbia University zoologist Harris Wang worked on it using CRISPR gene
editing method. When research was done on this, it was revealed that E.coli
bacteria conserve fructose on the lines of zero and one. This part can be used
to hold data. Harris Wang, with the help of his colleagues, was able to put the
message of Hello Word in an E coli bacteria with just 72 beats. With this
technique, it will be possible to retrieve the data inside the bacterium with the
same method as it is written. Just because of the DNA chain, the space for
preserving data will be greatly reduced and being alive it will not require
additional energy in its operation.
