"Here we report a storage strategy, called DNA Fountain, that is highly robust and approaches the information capacity per nucleotide".Read more

The group - referred to as the Article 29 Working Party -asked for more explanation of Microsoft's processing of personal data for various purposes, including advertising.Read more
