DNA Can Store Photos Of Kittens!

Researchers have now successfully stored and retrieved digital images using DNA as the storage medium. What initially sounds like something from the X-Files actually makes sense, when you consider that is what DNA is for - to hold the building blocks of living things; it IS a storage medium.

Putting on my tin foil hat for a moment (at a rakish angle), one wonders what they may find if they could decode all the so-called "junk" DNA in our makeup? Perhaps the meaning of Life, The Universe and Everything?

Kitteh is not impressed
