Houston Biocomputing Startup Cemvita Exa Develops New Way of Storing Data in Protein to Solve Storage Shortage

HOUSTON BIOCOMPUTING STARTUP CEMVITA EXA DEVELOPS NEW WAY OF STORING DATA IN PROTEIN TO SOLVE STORAGE SHORTAGE We’re delighted to share this news from our partner, Cemvita Exa about their technology breakthrough in biology-based solutions for data storage.

With conservative estimates suggesting that traditional data storage technologies (such as silicon-based and DNA-based) can only store half of the data generated by 2025, Cemvita Exa’s nature-inspired storage solution is stable at room temperature (similarly to human hair and nails), and does not require the carefully-controlled and energy-intensive storage support required by current methods.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors, the Best of America (93108fund)

Earlier this week, I was in Montecito, Calif., helping a friend raise awareness and money for his community. It was about three weeks after the early morning of Jan. 9 when a sudden rainstorm unleashed devastating early-morning flooding on the coastal community in Santa Barbara County. In minutes, 18 people died and dozens of homes were destroyed. Since then, most of us have returned to our lives. But that’s not the case in Montecito, where the flooding was the second major disaster in months. Late last year, the Thomas Fire, the largest wildlife in California’s history, burned the hills above Montecito, wiping out the trees and vegetation which normally would Read Full Blog Post >
