Analogue Memory Recording: Turn Your DNA Into a Hard Drive

Zidan Yang uses the latest advances in genome editing to unlock the secret memories of our cells.

Memory formation and storage, a notorious conundrum that human beings have been striving to understand for hundreds of years and still there is no definition universally accepted. Yet modern scientists embark on analysing memory at a digital and quantitative level. In the summer of 2016, biological engineers from MIT successfully devised an analogue memory storage machinery, which to some extent can shed new light on the interpretation of memory.
