CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. The term "CRISPR" generally refers to the entire CRISPR-Cas9 system, which may be programmed to target specific DNA sequences and edit at precise locations. While E.coli has been engineered and re-engineered several times to produce a wide variety of products including insulin, antibiotics and fuel, the concept of storing digital information in this bacteria is relatively new. A team of researchers from Harvard University have recently used CRISPR technology to add bits that encode digital data of a hand and a galloping horse into the bacterial genome.
