MOSLA develops trans-disciplinary approaches to the solution for one of mankind’s fundamental problems: the long-term storage of information. The development of molecular storage, both for elemental organic cluster elements and DNA molecules, is to be advanced. The scenario of a “digital dark age”, i.e. the loss of all digital information, should thus be prevented. MOSLA’s research regarding DNS as an information storage medium focuses on two core areas MOSLA: Increasing the storage density of DNA, e.g. through better algorithms for data coding and the use of modified nucleotides, as well as information storage in living cells (spores).
MOSLA at a Glance
All important information about our work here at MOSLA are also available as a leaflet. Bilingual in German and English, it summarizes the relevance, goals and approach of our research. It is illustrated by photos from our lab. The leaflet is available in print on request, as well as all time accessible as a download. Go ahead, take a look and pass it on to anyone interested:
The MOSLA-team got together virtually this week to exchange ideas and progess and discuss what is coming up. Packed with new ideas and fresh motivation, the end of this year is only the start into the last half of reasearch time as LOEWE-emphasis.
Going Forward is a series of brief interviews with the MOSLA team, talking about their motivations, passions and current goals. Get a glimpse on what they’re going about lately as well as who they are outside lab and office.
