Exponential increase in amount of digital data being generated, coupled to the limitations of conventional storage mediums, has created a need for sustainable storage options and DNA data storage has garnered significant interest as an alternative
Roots Analysis has announced the addition of DNA Data Storage Market, 2021-2035” report to its list of offerings.
DNA as a data storage medium helps eliminate the drawbacks inherent to the traditional storage methods, such as limited storage density, instability and limited life span, making it a potential storage option for future. However, exorbitant costs, slow speed of reading and writing DNA and vulnerability to mutations or errors, may act as a roadblock in the wider use of DNA as an effective data storage solution, which has prompted the stakeholders to focus on improvements in various steps involved in DNA data storage, including data encoding, DNA synthesis, preservation, data retrieval, and DNA sequencing.
