Harnessing DNA to store and compute the world’s data

Our Technology

The idea of storing information using DNA has been around for a while. It’s just that the cost of DNA synthesis has been a bottle neck. What CATALOG is building can be thought of as a printing press with movable typefaces. Instead of having to synthesize billions of different molecules, we are creating the necessary diversity by moving around the typefaces in different combinations.

The world will generate 160 zettabytes of data in 2025. That’s more bytes than there are stars in the observable universe. Conventional storage media like flash-drives and hard-drives do not have the longevity, data density, or cost efficiency to meet the global demand.

DNA is the digital storage medium selected by nature that has been perfected over 3 billion years of evolution. It can store millions of times more data in the same volume as conventional solutions, can last for thousands of years, and gives you the ability to physically own your data – even massive amounts of it.

We are examples of DNA-based computers. Not only do we store lots of data in DNA, our cells access and compute it in massively parallel ways. By enabling the storage of previously impossible amounts of data in DNA, CATALOG has taken a huge step in harnessing DNA-based computation.
