Seminar on storing digital data in DNA at the college of education for women

 

Associate dean for scientific affairs and a professor at the department of computer Assist. Prof. Dr. Affaf Badie al-Qado chaired a seminar entitled (DNA: future data storage) with the aim to identify this important technology to access, process, store, retrieve and manage large data in the least possible time and space. Dr. Affaf Badie explained that DNA contains huge encrypted information about the organism, so it makes sense for some companies like Microsoft to invest this technology in research to store data. Unlike most of the available data storage devices, DNA is very compressed and it does not decompose over time.
