Storage Developer Conference Podcast Series

Every week the Storage Developer Conference (SDC) podcast series presents important technical topics to the Storage Developer community. Each episode is hand-selected by the SNIA Technical Council from the presentations at SDC.

This week’s highlighted Podcast: #170: DNA Data Storage and Near-Molecule Processing for the Yottabyte Era by Luis Ceze, Co-founder and CEO, OctoML and Karin Strauss, Senior Principal Research Manager, Microsoft (MP3, Video, PDF of Slides)

DNA data storage is an attractive option for digital data storage because of its extreme density, durability and eternal relevance. This is especially attractive when contrasted with the exponential growth in world-wide digital data production. In this talk we will present our efforts in building an end-to-end system, from the computational component of encoding and decoding to the molecular biology component of random access, sequencing and fluidics automation. We will also discuss some early efforts in building a hybrid electronic/molecular computer system that can offer more than just data storage, for example, image similarity search.

Learning Objectives: 1) Describe the properties of synthetic DNA as a digital data storage medium; 2) Describe how an end-to-end DNA data storage system works; 3) Describe how to perform certain types of computation with synthetic DNA molecules.

The Podcast can be downloaded on iTunes. Download a copy of the original presentation slides as well.
