CATALOG Spring News and Updates

November 22, 2022

Welcome to the Spring edition of CATALOG News and Updates.  


CATALOG was recently an invited presenter at IBM THINK, IBM’s largest international client event typically attended by more than 20000 C level executives. The joint talk by CATALOG and IBM describes how the two companies collaborated on a novel approach to elevate the operational efficiency of CATALOG’s data encoding process. The benefits to CATALOG are an acceleration of insight into the fundamental processes upon which DNA data-encoding is based and a demonstration of a generalized approach for “design of experiments” problems.

The session, 2025 Making DNA storage more cost-efficient, is now available on demand.  

Free registration is required.  

If you have any questions after watching the session, please let us know.

Awards and Recognition

CATALOG’s Shannon system represents a milestone on the road to commercializing DNA encoding for data storage. With the level of innovation and progress we are making, external recognition has been forthcoming.CATALOG was recently named to the SOSV Climate Tech 100, which honors technology and startups that promise better human and planetary health. CATALOG was recognized in the Adjacent category for its efforts in using DNA for high-density data storage and computation, which dramatically reduces power consumption.

Additionally, Tracxn announced that CATALOG was included in the Emerging Startups of Life Sciences Platforms and Tools. This latest Emerging Award series recognizes the top companies in Life Sciences Platforms and Tools from across the globe.

CATALOG Welcomes Meni Wanunu the Scientific Advisory Board

Last winter, CATALOG announced the formation of a Scientific Advisory Board to help speed CATALOG's mission of being the first commercially DNA-based offering for computing and storage.  Today, we are pleased to welcome Professor Meni Wanunu as a key addition to that board.  

Since 2017 Professor Wanunu has served as the graduate program director at the Physics Department, and he Co-Directs Northeastern's Kostas Advanced Nano-Characterization Facility (KANCF) at Burlington MA, which specializes in atomic resolution.  His laboratory develops single-molecule methods powered by nanotechnology that address various challenges in biophysics and biomedical engineering. He is a prominent member of the single-molecule biophysics community, and research in his group seeks to develop novel single-molecule methods for quantifying biomolecular sequence, structure, and dynamics. In addition, he is exploring the use of nanomaterials in areas such as water purification and desalination.

Welcome, Professor Wanunu!
