DNA-based memory devices for recording cellular events, Published online: 20 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41576-018-0052-8

In this Review, Sheth and Wang describe emerging synthetic biology approaches for using DNA as a memory device for recording cellular events, including the various methodological steps from detecting diverse signals, converting them into DNA alterations and reading out and interpreting the recorded information. Furthermore, they discuss potential applications as biotechnological and environmental biosensors.
