DNA DRIVE : a new technology for sustainable data storage

The storage of digital data is a major challenge in our modern societies. Current digital media stored in data centers are fragile, bulky and energy-intensive. The ongoing digital transformation of our societies requires a major disruption of our digital storage technologies. DNA data storage is an emerging technology that has the advantage of being stable for thousands of years, extremely compact and energy-efficient. We are developing innovative concepts of DNA data storage based on domestication of biological systems. Our technology, named DNA DRIVE, and its proof of concept will be presented.

General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so planning a talk for a broader audience would be preferred. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:30 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up their computer. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
