A biological camera that captures and stores images directly into DNA

DNA encoded with the ‘BacCam’ system and found that there was no loss of information for the encoded images when stored in both liquid and dried form. Additionally, the encoded information remained intact even when stored in varying conditions for extended periods of time. The researchers also demonstrated the multiplexing capabilities of BacCam by successfully storing and retrieving multiple images in a single complex pool. Furthermore, they showed that specific images could be selectively amplified and decoded without the need to sequence the entire pool of DNA. This study provides a promising framework for integrating biological and digital interfaces, and offers a potential solution for DNA as a data storage medium.
