Abstract

As the demand for data storage is growing exponentially, higher density and durable storage solutions are necessary. DNA has many potential advantages as a medium for information storage because it is extremely dense, high capacity, low-maintenance and durability. Previous research has focused on ASCII code files or pictures, which ignored expression with other languages encoded with Unicode. We provide a DNA translator for multiple languages and also discuss the influence of entropy in different dataset. The effect of Huffman code encoding and ternary code encoding for different dataset are also compared. Our results indicate that the DNA memory translator system is very efficient for the dataset with low entropy.
