A big shout out to mon mari fantastique for this week's blog challenge question! Merci mon trésor! On March 2, 2017, The Scientist broke some interesting science news from Columbia University and the New York Genome Center that involved the encoding of DNA with large amounts of information such as large files including a computer operating system and one of the first French films by the frères Lumière shown in 1895. (See below for a hint!) According to researchers Yaniv Erlich and Dina Zielinski, DNA is far less likely to become obsolete when compared to cassette tapes and film and its "storage density is roughly 215 petabytes of data per gram of genetic material." For cinq tickets, I want to know the name of the French film that was encoded and then retrieved using DNA. Bonne chance! Ciao!
