Quote’s uit het boek KiDNApped van Rick Chesler

“Binary is the code that tells computers what to do. DNA is the code that tells living cells what to do. They´re both used to store algorithms – ordered sets of instructions – one for machines, and one for life. Different media, but they can be made to work together. [...] Nature’s information system. [...] Information storage is, after all, the natural function of DNA. [...] But an American team as far back as 2002 was succesful in encoding the lyrics of “It’s a Small World” into a culture of bacterial cells, just to prove the technological concept.”
