In an undated photo provided by European Molecular Biology Laboratory via Nature magazine, Dr. Nick Goldman of EMBL-EBI examines synthesized DNA in an Eppendorf vial. The genetic material has long stored all the information needed to make plants and animals, and now some scientists are saying it could help handle the growing storage needs of today’s information society. Researchers said Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013 that as a demonstration project, they had stored in DNA all 154 Shakespeare sonnets, a photo, a scientific paper, and a 26-second sound clip from Martin Luther King Jr.’s ``I Have A Dream’’ speech. That all fit in a barely visible bit of DNA in a test tube. (AP Photo/European Molecular Biology Laboratory via Nature)
