Biohackers First Netflix Original Series stored in DNA
San Francisco biotechnology company Twist Bioscience Corporation reported that for the first time in history, they were able to encode the Biohackers First Netflix Original Series stored in DNA. In this way, Netflix presented a new scientific series “Biohackers” to the public, in fact, only 200 units were produced. such copies of the series, because the process is not cheap and short, the coding alone took 3 days, and you still need to decode.
In the six-part series, the heroes explore biological interventions in the human body and household, genetic modifications, and exciting possibilities in the field of engineering biology. So this way of preservation has become a great advertisement for the series, showing the incredible and many unknown possibilities of biotechnology.
DNA is the oldest coding system known to science and we are only now beginning to explore its potential. The new BIOHACKERS explores some of the current possibilities, as well as future possibilities, through imagination and creativity. “DNA is an incredible molecule, and because of its unusual structure, the large amount of information encoded in it can be stored for thousands of years.
The DNA present in all cells of the human body can store 3 billion times more films made in the 21st century worldwide. This perfectly illustrates the magic of combining biology and technology possible by creating a synthetic (inert) DNA molecule and using it as a repository of information instead of our usual ones, ”said Dr. Leproust.
Twist Bioscience Corporation currently uses semiconductor technology to produce more than a million small pieces of DNA molecules arranged on a single silicon chip. The company aims to develop a next-generation silicon chip that would allow the company to synthesize or write 10 gigabytes of DNA information on each silicon chip, significantly reducing the cost of digital data storage, opening the door to wider use and faster commercialization.
