7,00,000 GB on a Gram of water drop : DNA Data Storage for you

DeoxyriboNucleic Acid  ,
They store more than just genetic knowledge and a recent development suggests their data harnessing capability will be a great tool for mankind to store knowledge and preserve it for millions of years.

  The potential of Idea  

It was in 2012 that a group of researchers from Harvard University made into news for storing 700+ terabytes of data into a single gram of DNA.

this means : Entire data of internet giants like Facebook and google will take as small space as a glass of water.
YES!!!! ENTIRE DATABASE.

Imagine a library of libraries in a pocket .

  PLUS POINT+  

Normal storage devices degrade 22% annually.A DNA storage device can last for millions of years if stored in frozen state and surrounded with inert and neutral agent.

Current scenario 

At ETH Zurich Scientists stored 83kb of data on a DNA spending 2000$ and it remained intact for 2-3 years.

But as research proceeds all over the world there is plenty of opportunity for a tremendous possibility like this .
