Exploration on JPEG DNA

JPEG standards are used in storage and archival of digital pictures. This puts the JPEG Committee is a good position to address the challenges of DNA-based storage by proposing an efficient image coding format to create artificial DNA molecules. JPEG DNA has been established as an exploration activity within the JPEG Committee to study use cases, to identify requirements and to assess the state of the art in DNA storage for the purpose of image archival using DNA in order to launch a standardization activity. To this end, multiple workshops were organised. Presentations and recordings of these workshops are available in the Documentation section. The JPEG Committee released a public document that describes its findings regarding storage of digital images using artificial DNA.

The JPEG DNA AHG mailing list is open to public and all stakeholders and interested parties in media technologies and applications that can benefit from DNA storage technologies are invited to join the mailing list and to take part in the activities by registering here.
