Researchers at Brown University have stored and retrieved over 200 kilobytes of digital image files by encoding the data in mixtures of custom-synthesized libraries of small molecules.
The Brown team last year published a paper showing they could store image files in the kilobyte range using some common metabolites; in this new work, the researchers were able to expand the size of their library of molecules by synthesizing their own.
Brown's Jacob Rosenstein said, “The large numbers of unique small molecules, the amount of data we can store, and the reliability of the data readout shows real promise for scaling this up even further.”
