A biostorage filetype : the .dna

An example: How to put ‘lajoconde.png’, the pic of the famous masterpiece  of leonard de vinci  in a bacteria: First step is to convert the pic as hexadecimal string, ex: ’12a8e’ and later convert it as a bin. The last step is to convert  the binary, ex: ‘00010’ with the fano method to .DNA .With the Fano method   A=1,T=01,C=000, G=001, can only be: 00001 = CT.  This method allow to work without ‘stop’ key, the result is something like ‘ATTTCGG’.

So now, this sequence can be integrate by a plasmid in a bacteria : Expecting sequencing will be less and less expensive, biostorage can be  a usefull method to store data, a little bacteria can store a lot of datas, don’t need critical material as metal, energy spend to copy is far less  compared with a normal hardisk, and i think the data loss is less than laser disk   or something else, your data can be stored during thousand and thousand years  and with the good backup you even don’t need to store it in ice.

Python source code

The resulting sequence  can be found here
