Movie encoded into the DNA of bacteria
An image and short movie have been encoded in DNA, using the units of inheritance as a medium for storing information.
Using the genome editing tool known as Crispr, US scientists inserted a GIF - five frames of a horse galloping - into the DNA of bacteria.
The frames are of the horse Annie G, captured in the late 19th Century by the British photography pioneer Eadward Muybridge.
