Scientists encode

computer virus into

DNA

Computer viruses look like the next phase of computer storage. Fascinating! Researchers have successfully written a computer virus into DNA which is able to infect and control computers when read. In essence, deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA for short, is a genetic database for storing information. This genetic database forms the masterplan for the building blocks of all living things from a cellular level all the way to organs and tissues. Utilising its fundamental basis of data storage, scientists have been leveraging this mechanism to encode DNA to store other forms of information such as books, audio recordings and images. As research and experimentation on DNA storage begins to grow, so does the potential to store a greater variety of data and programs. One such example is the University of Washington’s recent foray into encoding DNA with a computer virus that is fully active. Writing a virus into DNA Wherein most digital data is stored in a binary coding system of 1s and 0s, DNA stores its data in the form of a quaternary nucleotides: adenine (A), guanine (G), thymine (T) and cytosine (C). Knowing this, all the researchers at the Washington team had to convert the quaternary nucleotides into a ‘binary form’ – and sequence the exact code for the computer virus into the DNA’s code. When those recoded DNA strands were sequenced by a genetic analyser, the computer virus would become active and launch an attack against the computer system. Despite being the first team to successfully arm a DNA sequence with a virus, this success has proven to be a double-edged sword with the success of proving that DNA could be indeed used in the future, as a basis of cyber-attacks.
