The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is undertaking a $1.5 million effort to produce new DNA-based storage nanoscale devices using chimeric DNA, a hybrid molecule made from two different sources. As part of the three-year project, “SemiSynBio: An on-chip nanoscale storage system using chimeric DNA,” the team will design a method to read, write, and store data in a more cost-effective way than current DNA storage techniques. CSL's Olgica Milenkovic (ECE) leads the effort.
