Microsoft recorded in the DNA of the song Deep Purple Source:

On the application of DNA as a storage medium say for a long time. There is even a quite successful development in this area. And it seems that this technology may indeed prove to be the future, as recently a group of scientists from Microsoft Research in collaboration with colleagues from Twist Bioscience and the University of Washington set a new record in the recording, storage and transcription of information from DNA strands.

The Scientists were able to encode in DNA composition Tutu jazz artist miles Davis Smoke on the Water rock band Deep Purple performed live, and then reproduce them with absolute precision.

"the Encoding is done by transferring information from a familiar binary code (zeros and ones) in the structural code of DNA (in the form of four nitrogenous bases that comprise DNA). Reading is the reverse recoding into binary code. While physical DNA-the carrier smaller than a grain of sand".

As the scientists, unlike other media, DNA is able to securely store the information for thousands of years, whereas regular copies have to be replaced every 10 years.

"in Addition to longevity, DNA has an incredible capacity. In the amount of DNA the size of a pencil tip can be stored in about 10 terabytes of data, equivalent to 600 standard memory smartphones, and all of the digital information world will be able to fit about nine litres of this biological material."

Experts believe that their discovery will allow you to keep all important information for humanity intact virtually forever. And the existing entry now will become part of the archive of UNESCO «memory of the world».
