The next leap in computation: DNA

We began by storing data in synthetic DNA. Now we’re creating a whole new DNA-based computing platform.

“Computational capabilities will be what drive the adoption of DNA-based data platforms.”

Hyunjun Park, CEO of CATALOG

A world-class scientific advisory board

With leaders from industry and academia, our Scientific Advisory Board brings invaluable guidance as we make DNA-based computing commercially viable.

Meet Shannon, CATALOG’s prototype DNA writer

Shannon, CATALOG’s proof-of-concept prototype, uses a technology found in inkjet printers to write massive amounts of data in synthetic DNA. This device marks the beginning of a journey that will result in increasingly more compact and efficient systems for DNA-based computation and storage.
