CSFB – Thought Leader Forum: “The Amoeba dubia has 690 billion letters of gene code in it. We only have 3.2 billion letters of gene code. It’s 200 times the size of ours but still based on four letters. You can code binary code into life code: A=00, T=01, C=10, G=11. This becomes the science of bioinformatics. The amoeba only needs 1 billion letters to live. The rest is storage space. You can store every copy of the New York Times ever printed on a couple of amoebas. And they can reproduce. That’s what a nanocomputer looks like.”
