Researchers encoded a short video in DNA, inserted it into live bacteria and retrieved it with 90 percent accuracy.
A team of scientists has uploaded a GIF into live bacteria, because going viral just isn't enough anymore.
Usually those DNA chunks contain information about the cell — but researchers created new sequences that corresponded to pixels on an image of a horse galloping.
Five frames of that GIF were encoded into living E. coli cells. Researchers then sequenced the genes of those cells and were able to reconstruct the image with 90 percent accuracy.
Writing data in DNA isn't a new concept — Microsoft even bought 10 million strands of DNA last year to investigate if the microscopic, durable strings of info can someday be an efficient data storage solution.
Researcher Seth Shipman said: "If a cell could be gathering information and recording it into its own genome, ... a clinician could go in and sequence out the genomic locus that has that information and see what's been going on previously."
A study from WalletHub found America's happiest cities — and there's a stark difference between the coasts.
Many families are making the decision to move their embryos out of the state due to the uncertainty of what will happen to them.
The probe landed at a higher altitude than its planned touchdown site, and was therefore moving faster than expected.
Women's reproductive rights are interconnected with how state and local economies perform, and bans historically occur in underfunded areas.
Wednesday’s vote came after the lower house, the National Assembly, overwhelmingly approved the proposal in January.
Scripps News hears insight from young journalists about the 2024 election, local news and how to connect with a young audience.
