DNA is a hard drive, the memory in every cell of every living organism that has the instructions on how to make that cell. With the exponential growth of our media, the growth of data storage is also increasing. DNA is incredible compact due to its molecular structure and can be used to achieve data attractively through genome sequencing. A raw limit of 1 Exabyte/mm3 (109 GB/mm3) having half-life of over 500 years. With this, all the data of the world can be stored in just a small place of a room.
