Abstract: 

The eukaryotic cell is a fascinating piece of biological machinery – storage is at its heart, literally, within the nucleus. This presentation will tell a story of the evolution of the storage portion of the human cell and its present capacity and properties that could be "bio-mimicked" for future digital storage systems, especially deep archives.

Learning Objectives

Biological storage concepts
Requirements for a storage 'unit'
