DNA is an information-storing molecule; the genes passed from generation to generation transmit the blueprints for creating the organism (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) Top News Her computer Karin Strauss says contains her “digital attic” — a place where she stores that published math paper she wrote in high school and computer science schoolwork from college She’d like to preserve the stuff “as long as I live at least” says Strauss 37 But computers must be replaced every few years and each time she must copy the information over “which is a little bit of a headache” It would be much better she says if she could store it in DNA — the stuff our genes are made of Strauss who works at Microsoft Research in Redmond Washington is working to make that sci-fi fantasy a reality She and other scientists are not focused in finding ways to stow high school projects or snapshots or other things an average person might accumulate at least for now Rather they aim to help companies and institutions archive huge amounts of data for decades or centuries at a time when the world is generating digital data faster than it can store it To understand her quest it helps to know how companies governments and other institutions store data now: For long-term storage it’s typically disks or a specialized kind of tape wound up in cartridges about three inches on a side and less than an inch thick A single cartridge containing about half a mile of tape can hold the equivalent of about 46 million books of 200 pages apiece and three times that much if the data lends itself to being compressed Watch Video: What’s making news A tape cartridge can store data for about 30 years under ideal conditions says Matt Starr chief technology officer of Spectra Logic which sells data-storage devices But a more practical limit is 10 to 15 years he says It’s not that the data will disappear from the tape A bigger problem is familiar to anybody who has come across an old eight-track tape or floppy disk and realized he no longer has a machine to play it Technology moves on and data can’t be retrieved if the means to read it is no longer available Starr says So for that and other reasons long-term archiving requires repeatedly copying the data to new technologies Into this world comes the notion of DNA storage DNA is by its essence an information-storing molecule; the genes we pass from generation to generation transmit the blueprints for creating the human body That information is stored in strings of what’s often called the four-letter DNA code That really refers to sequences of four building blocks — abbreviated as A C T and G — found in the DNA molecule Specific sequences give the body directions for creating particular proteins Digital devices on the other hand store information in a two-letter code that produces strings of ones and zeroes A capital “A” for example is 01000001 Converting digital information to DNA involves translating between the two codes In one lab for example a capital A can become ATATG The idea is once that transformation is made strings of DNA can be custom-made to carry the new code and hence the information that code contains One selling point is durability Scientists can recover and read DNA sequences from fossils of Neanderthals and even older life forms So as a storage medium “it could last thousands and thousands of years” says Luis Ceze of the University of Washington who works with Microsoft on DNA data storage Advocates also stress that DNA crams information into very little space Almost every cell of your body carries about six feet of it; that adds up to billions of miles in a single person In terms of information storage that compactness could mean storing all the publicly accessible data on the internet in a space the size of a shoebox Ceze says In fact all the digital information in the world might be stored in a load of whitish powdery DNA that fits in space the size of a large van says Nick Goldman of the European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton England What’s more advocates say DNA storage would avoid the problem of having to repeatedly copy stored information into new formats as the technology for reading it becomes outmoded “There’s always going to be someone in the business of making a DNA reader because of the health care applications” Goldman says “It’s always something we’re going to want to do quickly and inexpensively” Getting the information into DNA takes some doing Once scientists have converted the digital code into the 4-letter DNA code they have to custom-make DNA For some recent research Strauss and Ceze worked on that involved creating about 10 million short strings of DNA Twist Bioscience of San Francisco used a machine to create the strings letter by letter like snapping together Lego pieces to build a tower The machine can build up to 16 million strings at a time Each string carried just a fragment of information from a digital file plus a chemical tag to indicate what file the information came from To read a file scientists use the tags to assemble the relevant strings A standard lab machine can then reveal the sequence of DNA letters in each string Nobody is talking about replacing hard drives in consumer computers with DNA For one thing it takes too long to read the stored information That’s never going to be accomplished in seconds says Ewan Birney who works on DNA storage with Goldman at the bioinformatics institute But for valuable material like corporate records in long-term storage “if it’s worth it you’ll wait” says Goldman who with Birney is talking to investors about setting up a company to offer DNA storage Sri Kosuri of the University of California Los Angeles who has worked on DNA information storage but now largely moved on to other pursuits says one challenge for making thetechnology practical is making it much cheaper Scientists custom-build fairly short strings DNA now for research but scaling up enough to handle information storage in bulk would require a “mind-boggling” leap in output Kosuri says With current technology that would be hugely expensive he says George Church a prominent Harvard genetics expert agrees that cost is a big issue But “I’m pretty optimistic it can be brought down” dramatically in a decade or less says Church who is in the process of starting a company to offer DNA storage methods For all the interest in the topic it’s worth noting that so far the amount of information that researchers have stored in DNA is relatively tiny Earlier this month Microsoft announced that a team including Strauss and Ceze had stored a record 200 megabytes The information included 100 books __ one fittingly was “Great Expectations” __ along with a brief video and many documents But it was still less than 5 percent the capacity of an ordinary DVD Yet it’s about nine times the mark reported just last month by Church who says the announcement shows “how fast the field is moving” Meanwhile people involved with archiving digital data say their field views DNA as a possibility for the future but not a cure-all “It’s a very interesting and promising approach to the storage problem but the storage problem is really only a very small part of digital preservation” says Cal Lee a professor at the University of North Carolina’s School of Information and Library Science It’s true that society will probably always have devices to read DNA so that gets around the problem of obsolete readers he says But that’s not enough “If you just read the ones and zeroes you don’t know how to interpret it” Lee says For example is that string a picture text a sound clip or a video Do you still have the software to make sense of it What’s more the people in charge of keeping digital information want to check on it periodically to make sure it’s still intact and “I don’t know how viable that is with DNA” says Euan Cochrane digital preservation manager at the Yale University Library It may mean fewer such check-ups he says Cochrane who describes his job as keeping information accessible “10 years to forever” says DNA looks interesting if its cost can be reduced and scientists find ways to more quickly store and recover information Starr says his data-storage device company hasn’t taken a detailed look at DNA technologybecause it’s too far in the future There are “always things out on the horizon that could store data for a very long time” he says But the challenge of turning those ideas into a practical product “really trims the field down pretty quickly”

the National Security Agency after a contractor put information on his home computer two newspapers reported on Thursday (File Photo) Related News Russian government-backed hackers stole highly classified US cyber secrets in 2015 from the National Security Agency after a contractor put information on his home computer two newspapers reported on Thursday As reported first by The Wall Street Journal citing unidentified sources the theft included information on penetrating foreign computer networks and protecting against cyber attacks and is likely to be viewed as one of the most significant security breaches to date In a later story The Washington Post said the employee had worked at the NSA’s Tailored Access Operations unit for elite hackers before he was fired in 2015 The NSA declined to comment citing agency policy “never to comment on our affiliates or personnel issues” Reuters was not able to independently verify the reports If confirmed the hack would mark the latest in a series of breaches of classified data from the secretive intelligence agency including the 2013 leaks of data on classified US surveillance programs by contractor Edward Snowden Another contractor Harold Martin is awaiting trial on charges that he took classified NSA material home The Washington Post reported that Martin was not involved in the newly disclosed case Republican Senator Ben Sasse a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee said in a statement responding to the Journal report that if true the details were alarming “The NSA needs to get its head out of the sand and solve its contractor problem” Sasse said “Russia is a clear adversary in cyberspace and we can’t afford these self-inflicted injuries” Tensions are already high in Washington over US allegations of a surge in hacking of American targets by Russians including the targeting of state election agencies and the hacking of Democratic Party computers in a bid to sway the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in favour of Republican Donald Trump Citing unidentified sources both the Journal and the Post also reported that the contractor used antivirus software from Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab the company whose products were banned from US government networks last month because of suspicions they help the Kremlin conduct espionage Kaspersky Lab has strongly denied those allegations Russian government officials could have used flaws in Kaspersky software to hack into the machine in question security experts told Reuters They could also have intercepted traffic from the machine to Kaspersky computers Kaspersky said in a statement on Thursday that it found itself caught in the middle of a geopolitical fight “Kaspersky Lab has not been provided any evidence substantiating the company’s involvement in the alleged incident reported by the Wall Street Journal” it said “It is unfortunate that news coverage of unproven claims continue to perpetuate accusations about the company” The Department of Homeland Security on September 13 banned Kaspersky products in federal networks and the US Senate approved a bill to ban them from use by the federal government citing concerns the company may be a pawn of the Kremlin and poses a national security risk James Lewis a cyber expert with the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies said the report of the breach sounded credible though he did not have firsthand information on what had transpired “The baffling parts are that he was able to get stuff out of the building and that he was using Kaspersky despite where he worked” Lewis said He said that intelligence agencies have considered Kaspersky products to be a source of risk for years Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen who led calls in Congress to purge Kaspersky Lab products from government networks on Thursday called on the Trump administration to declassify information about threats posed by Kaspersky Lab “It’s a disservice to the public and our national security to continue withholding this information” Shaheen said in a statement For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News
