The biological composition of the human is so efficient in terms of storage of information using the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA). Digitally storing information in the DNA involves the process of encoding and decoding binary data from the synthesized DNA strand. DNA molecules represent the genetic blueprints for living cells. The idea of using DNA to store data was first proposed in the mid-1990s. Moore's law is approaching its limit, but the ability to manipulate molecules is growing faster than ever. DNA could provide alternative substrates for computing and storage, as the existing ones approach their physical limits. Various works on DNA's ability to store information were not realized until about a decade ago. The DNA fountain records a high capacity technique for storing information efficiently. The paper reviews the advances in DNA computing to see how it affects efficient storage in memory elements.


The genome represents an organism's complete set of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) including all the genes. It contains all the information needed to build and maintain that organism. The human genome is made up of more than three billion DNA base pairs and is found in all cells that have a nucleus. DNA molecules carry hereditary materials in all living cells and contain all the information needed to build an organism. In short, DNA is equivalent to information.
