NEXT-GENERATION DIGITAL INFORMATION STORAGE IN DNA | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it

Digital information is accumulating at an astounding rate, straining our ability to store and archive it. DNA is among the most dense and stable information media known. The development of new technologies in both DNA synthesis and sequencing make DNA an increasingly feasible digital storage medium. We developed a strategy to encode arbitrary digital information in DNA, wrote a 5.27-megabit book using DNA microchips, and read the book by using next-generation DNA sequencing.

Newly discovered neural connections may be linked to emotional decision-making | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it
Using expansion microscopy, MIT neuroscientists have discovered connections deep within the brain that appear to form a communication pathway between areas that control emotion, decision-making, and movement. These so-called striosome-dendron bouquets may be involved in controlling how the brain makes decisions influenced by emotion or anxiety. They may also be a target of neural degeneration seen in Parkinson’s disease.
