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.

NC State, UNC scientists develop wristwatch that monitors body chemistry

Thanks to Triangle researchers, the next high-tech health invention could be a wristwatch that collects health data from the skin’s surface. The project resembles bio-sensing devices like FitBits and Apple Watches, but it can track much more about health than measuring physical activity and heart rate.
