Thanks, Linda for the additional resource! Look forward to reviewing your presentation.
Here’s another resource related to DNA storage. In April, I participated in a JPEG workshop on DNA storage, and presented on the requirements for DNA to be used for digital preservation storage. My presentation begins at around 10:45 in the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCdvtR5GyXo
Just a reminder for our upcoming NDSA Infrastructure Interest Group call on Monday, September 20, at 3pm ET on Zoom.
For the September meeting we will have an open agenda. Please bring with you an infrastructure-related problem or challenge that you’re currently facing at your institution (technical or non-technical in nature, any scale). Our goal will be to focus conversation on several of these and share related experiences that may help shepherd a given challenge toward a solution.
Leah and I would like to try a new meeting format in October. One of the topics our group has expressed interest in is next generation storage. The following half-hour video and brief paper provide an engaging introduction to use of DNA storage for digital preservation:
Ahead of October 18th, let’s take some time to review these resources and plan to have a conversation around them.
Many thanks go out to Tricia Patterson and Stephen Abrams at Harvard Library for these selections, as they stem from their Digital Preservation Reading Club.
