Adobe Confidential. #NewTech16 @mdialnetexplo.org DNA DATA STORAGE (SWITZERLAND) DNA is a biological code that can be engineered. Researchers at ETH Zurich used DNA sequencing not to create organic matter but to encode and store the Swiss Federal Charter and Archimedes’ Methods (83Ko). In addition to its longevity compared with other media (over 10,000 years in a silicon shell), DNA has huge storage capacity: 
 1g could hold all of google’s data. How long until computers have organic memories?
