A geneticist and a bioengineer at Harvards slogged together to store nearly 700 terabytes or 5.5 petabits of data in one single gram of DNA. Their combined effort has smashed the density record of DNA data that has been previously recorded, by shoving a whopping 700 terabytes in one gram, by nearly a thousand times.
Is evolution being re-staged by the scientists? We hold on to the sides of our chairs as the scientists burn their midnight oil trying to recreate a dinosaur in their laboratories.They have been successful with bacteria and ancient plants and now have finally managed to merge a bacteria with a 500 year old gene !
North and South America was barren of people until, some Siberian “daring” individuals crossed over a bridge to step into America.

They analyzed that 15,000 years ago, “First Americans“ inhabitants traversed in from Siberia after climbing past a land bridge during the Last Ice age. They did not land in America all at once. When the people turned up in America they came in 3 groups one by one.

Can you guess the amount of information stored in the world? Scientists have measured the data available and found it to be 295 exabytes by 2007. An exabyte is equal to ten to the power of 18 bytes. Scientists say that information is equivalent to 1.2 billion hard drives.
Health hazards of smoking are known to all, but did you know that damage starts much earlier than thought?
