Nature’s Databank

A hurdle that DNA data storage faces is finding a way to retrieve a specific file from a collection of records instead of every file in that collection, however attaching short labels to data sequences only yields 30,000 unique labels. NC State’s James Tuck is leading the solution increasing the number of labels to roughly 900 million.
