The presentation says 1 gram of E.coli can store 900,000 GB. There would be some amazing applications if they can get the sequencing rate to go faster than 30 minutes.

Thanks for sharing this info. :)

When you think of what it takes to keep 1 gram of that alive vs powering how many machines the 'green' possibilities are amazing as well.

Yeah, I'd think Google would be pouring money into this sort of research -- precisely because one of their largest expenses is electricity.
