Focusing on error-correction methods and codes, a systems level design is presented for encoding movies and digital information in DNA storage. A source of data (e.g., movies, audio) is compressed, efficiently encoded with redundant information, modulated, and stored in multiple DNA oligonucleotide strands. The goal is to decode the source from the DNA reliably even in the presence of diverse errors introduced by DNA synthesis, PCR amplification, and DNA sequencing processes.
