1 gram of DNA 215
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions for the development and function of living things. All known cellular life and some viruses contain DNA. The main role of DNA in the cell is the long-term storage of information.
Humanity has a data storage problem: More data were created in the past 2 years than in all of preceding history. And that torrent of information may soon outstrip the ability of hard drives to capture it. Now, researchers report that they've come up with a new way to encode digital data in DNA to create the highest-density large-scale data storage scheme ever invented. Capable of storing 215 petabytes (215 million gigabytes) in a single gram of DNA.

"Error-correcting codes are what make browsers work, so why were they in the equations that I was studying about quarks, and leptons, and supersymmetry?" he said. "That's what brought me to this very stark realization that I could no longer say that people like Max [Tegmark] are crazy."
Science of Immortal DNA
"A billionaire Russian businessman is making it his life's goal to stay alive forever by uploading his brain into a computer."
My Avatar, Myself - NEVER
Dr. Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project (that mapped the human DNA structure) said that one can "think of DNA as an instructional script, a software program, sitting in the nucleus of the cell." It's almost-impossible to replicate.
"2018's FIRST REVEAL is all about our DNA."
In the not-too-distant future.
Humankind will try to "create" a digital blueprint.
A SECRET OF LIFE
Over millennia, nature has created an incredible information storage medium - DNA. It already stores genetic information, blueprints for building proteins, but DNA can be used for many more purposes than just that. DNA is also much denser than modern storage media: The data on hundreds of thousands of DVDs could fit inside a matchbox-size package of DNA.
DNA is also much more durable - lasting thousands of years - than today's hard drives, which may last years or decades. And while hard drive formats and connection standards become obsolete, DNA never will, at least so long as there's life.
DNA cloning is a molecular biology technique that makes many identical copies of a piece of DNA, such as a gene. In a typical cloning experiment, a target gene is inserted into a circular piece of DNA called a plasmid.
In the future, THIS cloning will (try to) go Digital.
If the computational hypothesis of brain function is correct, it
suggests that an exact replica of your brain will hold your memories,
will act and think and feel the way you do, and will experience your
consciousness - But what about our DNA?
SILICON IMMORTALITY :
DOWNLOADING CONSCIOUSNESS INTO COMPUTERS
While medicine will advance in the next half century, we are not on a crash-course for achieving immortality by curing all disease. Bodies simply wear down with use. We are on a crash-course, however, with technologies that let us store unthinkable amounts of data and run gargantuan simulations. Therefore, well before we understand how brains work, we will find ourselves able to digitally copy the brain's structure and able to download the conscious mind into a computer.
It may be impossible to replicate our DNA . . . digitally.
Storing Data in DNA Brings Nature into the Digital Universe:
They first converted the files into binary strings of 1s and 0s, compressed them into one master file, and then split the data into short strings of binary code. They devised an algorithm called a DNA fountain, which randomly packaged the strings into so-called droplets.
SINCE THE YEAR 2012
Scientists have been storing digital data in DNA since 2012.
Harvard University geneticists George Church, Sri Kosuri, and colleagues encoded a 52,000-word book in thousands of snippets of DNA, using strands of DNA's four-letter alphabet of A, G, T, and C to encode the 0s and 1s of the digitized file.
DNA Super-Intelligence Is Just A Front:
British philosopher, Dr. Antony Flew, was a leading spokesperson for atheism, actively involved in debate after debate. However, scientific discoveries within the last 30 years brought him to a conclusion he could not avoid. In a video interview in December 2004 he stated, "Super-intelligence is the only good explanation for the origin of life and the complexity of nature."1 Prominent in his conclusion were the discoveries of DNA --- But there's a more deeper layer to our DNA that has not been uncovered. Its sheer magnitude!

BLACK MIRROR SPOILER
Using the DNA of his colleagues, he has uploaded copies of their consciousnesses into the game and trapped them there, forever the slaves to his twisted digital vision.
How realistic is the futuristic technology in "Black Mirror"?
It's very, scary REAL.
DNA to harness one's consciousness?
Mike: I feel like if we're at a point where we can instantaneously analyze someone's DNA and copy it well enough to mimic their consciousness, we'd probably have achieved the singularity and be able to upload our own minds into the cloud.
Throw 3D-scanning technology into the mix and I could easily see something like this existing in the future, without the need for literally replicating us through our DNA.
DNA to Infinity
DNA is made up of four chemicals, abbreviated as letters A, T, G, and C. Much like the ones and zeros, these letters are arranged in the human cell like this: CGTGTGACTCGCTCCTGAT and so on. The order in which they are arranged instructs the cell's actions.
What is amazing is that within the tiny space in every cell in your body, this code is three billion letters long!!2
To grasp the amount of DNA information in one cell, "a live reading of that code at a rate of three letters per second would take thirty-one years, even if reading continued day and night."
So imagine, "Downloading/Uploading" THAT information to the cloud.
The U.S. Gov. is able to identify everyone in our country by the
arrangement of a nine-digit social security number. Yet, inside every
cell in you is a three-billion-lettered DNA structure that belongs only
So GOD created a "security" that is virtually unbreakable for us mortals. Its sheer size!
