Storing Data in DNA 

A single gram of DNA can store 215 petabytes (215 million gigabytes).

DNA is stable and can last anywhere from 10 to 500 years. As a result, it is perfect for archival storage.

Finally, the storage of DNA data is scalable. As sequencing costs decline, it will become feasible to store increasing amounts of data in DNA strands.
