SCIENTISTS UPLOAD A GALLOPING HORSE GIF INTO BACTERIA WITH CRISPR

Using bacteria to store data.

To the left are a series of frames from Eadweard Muybridge’s Human and Animal Locomotion. To the right are the frames after multiple generations of bacterial growth, recovered by sequencing bacterial genomes.

A new twist on the spy game.

I haven't worked out all the details but seriously, why would anyone need to put digital information in the DNA of a single living cell unless it was to transport it incognito. Granted when teleportation becomes the thing to do, then it would be highly useful but we're a long ways from that. Honestly I'm just fascinated that it can be done. Human possibilities are endless.

This sounds fascinating, but I have no idea how that works. I mean, how can dna move?

Maybe the new computers will be cell based. Seen it in movies, or was it StarGate, about a organic computer. Next level in quantum computers.

“What we’re trying to develop is a molecular recorder that can sit inside living cells and collect data over time.”


Living cells could also be made to record what happens inside them or in the tissues and fluids that surround them. A neuroscientist by training, Shipman said that scientists have long struggled to understand brain development because it is hard to make measurements without interfering with the process. “If we had cells that recorded information inside the brain, the whole organ could develop and you could go in and retrieve the data once it’s all done,” he said.
