Yeah, those 1587 GB of data are highly redundant. With a good compressing algorithm, it should be possible to transfer that in less than 3 seconds (and less messier) with 4G. :D

75MB for a person are really not that much. I wonder if those are only the coding portions or all of the DNA.

Has to be just the coding. I heard it said that an entire dna strand would take up (i think it was) 8TB of hdd space.

Loved the bookshelves! There's one that's a closet turned into a "book nook" with a cushioned seat and drawers underneath. I'm going to see if Hubby can do that with the closet in the den. When he starts swearing, I'll direct him to you Dug. ;)

Well I managed it in the last flat with the walk in closet Catch-up well near enough, and I'm not a builder or tradesman, this time I'm using the biggest bedroom to do the same, even have a corner unit so it flows around the walls, just bought today the last two bookcases which will be delivered on Friday making 12 bookcases in all. :D :dance:

Art.

Raptorn:
GB, rather. I just checked and the human genome has roughly 3.3 billion base pairs. Since you can store a DNA-Sequence with just the 4 letters ATGC and you only need one half of a strand to have all information, that makes roughly 1.6 billion bytes of data = 1.6 GB. Since you only need 4 symbols, that isn't even accurate, since you could store those 4 letters in just 2 bits - (00 = A, 10 = T, 01 = G, 11 = C), so in one byte you can encode 4 bases. Makes it 400 MB of data. Since parts of the DNA are highly redundant you could probably get to 75 MB with a compression algorithm.
Gotta check if that is correct.

Edit: Minor correction: Dividing by 2 isn't allowed here, since you could just store a base pair in one bit. So that makes around 800 MB for the whole genome. The coding part of that is about 3%, which amounts to about 24 MB - but since we don't know what the other approximately 97% of the DNA do, it's probably safer to not ditch them :D. Else evolution would probably have taken care of that already.

Edit II: Oh, and if we're talking about the complete genome, not the one in sperm or egg cells, then we have to multiply with 2, since all other cells are diploid (have 2 complete DNAs, one from the father and one from the mother).

That made me snort, and think of the Speechless Headlines link I posted yesterday!!

There's a road that runs through Sharlene's apartment complex called North Super Chicken Drive. It always makes me chuckle. :lol:
