Any discussion about blockchain must begin with the first known application of the protocol: bitcoin. Bitcoin, although originally…

Scientist Discover a New, More Accurate Method for DNA Storage.

Science, Technology
If you paid attention at all during high-school biology class, then you already know that DNA(Deoxyribonucleic acid) is ostensibly a blueprint for every living plant, animal, and microbe in the history of life on planet Earth. DNA consists of a microscopic double helix formed from varying permutations of four nucleotides: guanine, thymine, adenine and cytosine, represented by the letters G, T, A, and C, respectively. Besides being really good at putting 9th graders to sleep,DNA is also one of the most efficient, stable, and compact storage mechanisms known to man. It is because of this fact that, ever since they've had the ability to sequence and synthesize DNA, scientists have been trying to find new ways to take advantage of its amazing properties. Now, it seems that Dr. Nick Goldman of the…
