Genetics may offer the best option for archiving vast amounts of man-made data, according to scientists who have demonstrated a working DNA storage and retrieval system.

...

The DNA code was emailed to Agilent, a biotechnology company in California, which turned it into physical DNA molecules and posted the resulting freeze-dried powder back to Cambridge. “The result looks like a tiny piece of dust,” said Emily Leproust of Agilent.

Using a DNA reading machine, EBI was able to reconstruct the original digital data with 100 per cent accuracy.

How can bitcoin take advantage of this technology? 

Store blockchain snapshots as DNA? Kind of a gimmick though. 

A persons DNA as public key/address would be great, but I don't think bitcoin works that way.

"Printing" DNA is simply awesome and revolutionary. Data storage is just a minor detail such technology may revolutionize.

A persons DNA as public key/address would be great, but I don't think bitcoin works that way. 

Anything can be converted to a private key. I just don't think you'd really like to use your DNA for that though... Smiley

I thought it was interesting they used ternary (instead of binary) for the DNA encoding.
