Molecular-Scale Data Storage and Archiving RFI

April 21, 2023

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) seeks information regarding molecular-scale data storage and archiving.

IARPA is investigating faster, better, cheaper ways to store data. In particular, IARPA seeks to understand the current technological landscape for writing and reading data using DNA as the storage media. IARPA also wants to explore the processes that need to be implemented to successfully use DNA-based tera- / exa-byte archives with error rates similar to or better than current storage technologies.
