Researchers recently devised a method to expand DNA's data storage by artificially extending the DNA alphabet. It's part of a broad effort to use DNA to hold computer information. "DNA is 1 million times denser than the densest mainstream digital storage device," Luis Ceze, a computer science and engineering professor who studies DNA storage at th
