I remember reading about this topic a few years ago. It is indeed very interesting.

But I see 2 obvious challenges:

1. Coming up with a standard "encoding" to use these four values (nucleobases) to represent actual data.

2. An affordable and efficient way to read and write. Because even a flash drive has a formatting... I can only imagine what sort of device(s) you would need to go from "chemistry" to "zeros and ones", and vice-versa.

But super cool post. Very informative.
