Mathematical Research at the University of Cambridge


The recent exponential growth in digital data production has led to work looking at new ways to store vast amounts of such data for long term future use which have increased durability compared to mainstream storage solutions. This talk presents a proof-of-principle study into the feasibility of DNA as a long-term digital information storage medium. This project presented a number of good scientific challenges, and is accessible to a wide audience.
