1878, a series of photographs of a rider on his galloping horse were turned into the first-ever motion picture titled, “The Galloping Horse.” Recently, researchers at Harvard University were able to recreate this classic moving image into the DNA of the bacteria E. coli.
That’s right. They encoded a movie into bacteria. Images and other information have already been encoded into bacteria for years. However, the Harvard researchers have taken it a step further with the gene editing tool CRISPR-Cas system.
