Hong Kong team stores 900TB of data in 1g of bacteria

For the iGem competition 2010, a research team out of the Chinese University of Hong Kong has found a way to do data encryption and storage with bacteria. "We harness the incredible adaptability of simple organisms in the tortured environment to make sure that the message stored can be left undisturbed regardless of any environmental changes". The team successes in storing 931,322GB of data in 1g of E. coli, compare to the data density of 14GB/gram for a typical hard disk.

The project is called 'Bioencryption,' and their presentation (as a PDF file) is here.
