Randy Kerns was quoted for an article on DNA storage.
Although the focus is on archival storage for now, there is potential for further applications, perhaps through parallelisation. Randy Kerns, senior strategist at Evaluator Group, explains: “The parallelism could be in sequencing which will speed the process, allowing it to perform at a level beyond the expectations for archival storage. Also, parallel operations vs. DNA to allow other uses is done with operations across multiple elements of data at the same time, similar to the arguments for computation storage with SSDs. An example may be implementing a search function that could run in parallel.“
