Microsoft demonstrates ’First Fully Automated DNA Data Storage’

Microsoft along with researchers from the University of Washington have successfully automated the process to translate digital information into DNA and back to bits. The system to store and retrieve data in manufactured DNA is a key step in moving the technology out of the research lab and into commercial data centers.

Ugh. I would not want to store info on DNA. Even the best DNA repair enzymes allow so many errors. I'm not sure of the rate of error generation in computer stored data. but it's hard to imagine that it is greater than DNA. We are just lucky that many mistakes don't matter to protein creation in our cells and that we have so many cells.

Microsoft turning bit rot into literal bit rot. I wonder how practical the read and write speeds could be.
