Bio computers, genetic computers, or DNA computers might use living cells to store information and perform complex calculations. DNA has a vast amount of storage capacity. Computers might tap the vast storage capacity that enables DNA to hold the complex blueprints of living organisms. The storage capacity of a single gram of DNA can hold as much information as one trillion compact discs.
