DNA Fountain is a strategy to store and retrieve DNA
information that is robust and approaches the theoretical
maximum of information that can be stored per
nucleotide. The success of our strategy lies in careful
adaptation of recent developments in coding theory to the
domain specific constraints of DNA storage.
Our approach opens the possibility of highly reliable DNA-based storage that approaches the information capacity of DNA molecules and enables data retrieval for virtually an unlimited number of times.
Capacity-approaching DNA storage

This video demonstrates the DNA Fountain decoding:
from complete recovery of the encoded
tar.gz file and
extraction of its content to running the archived operating
on a virtual machine.
