DNA Data Storage - 700TB Per Gram

Those bright sparks over at Harvard have been able to encode 700 TB of data - that's about 14,000 Blu-ray  disk's worth - onto (into?) a single gram of DNA material. It's a concept that has been around for a little while, but this latest effort breaks any previous records. It's not a solution for everyday data storage, although it looks like it may be a viable solution for archiving large amounts of data in the future.
Just think about that for a second, soon we may be documenting our species' many triumphs in the very same material that defines who we are. Sort of poetic isn't it? Poetic and awesome.
