Mentor: Tigran Aghabekyan
Project name: DNA Data Storage
Project Description: Molecular storage of information is an attractive alternative for a growing data amount. Since DNA data storage appears as an ultra-compact, lasting and secure way to maintain information, the aim of the project is to research the data storage methods, specifically the molecular one, acquire knowledge in genetics and evolution and learn R language (a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics). The club members will explore the experience of the companies dealing with Digital DNA Data Storage and try to establish contact with them in order to learn more about this technology. Along with calculating how much time and money is needed, the students are supposed to launch discussions with various firms, which could be interested in DNA data storage.
Expected result: to implement DNA data storage in Armenia.
