Notes "Thanks to advances in the field of synthetic biology, scientists can now store data in the form of DNA code. As such, the utility of DNA as part of a "molecular" tagging system has been explored. DNA is incredibly small, and thus offers the potential for an incredibly compact tagging system, compared to conventional approaches...'We designed the first portable, end-to-end molecular tagging system that enables rapid, on-demand encoding and decoding at scale, and which is more accessible than existing molecular tagging methods,” added Doroshack. Porcupine, developed in collaboration with Microsoft, uses synthetic DNA-based tags and nanopore-based readouts.'"
