Trump brawled in a way McCain or Romney did not. He certainly did not prefer losing nobly to winning ugly. Even more ominously, Trump found a seam in the supposedly invincible new progressive…

[Report] DNA Fountain enables a robust and efficient storage architecture

DNA is an attractive medium to store digital information. Here we report a storage strategy, called DNA Fountain, that is highly robust and approaches the information capacity per nucleotide. Using our approach, we stored a full computer operating system, movie, and other files with a total of 2.14 × 106 bytes in DNA oligonucleotides and perfectly retrieved the information from a sequencing coverage equivalent to a single tile of Illumina sequencing. We also tested a process that can allow 2.18 × 1015 retrievals using the original DNA sample and were…
