  1. Actually, I didn't really learn anything from this, and as a computer science student I guess I'm not quite an expert no this.
    Well I forgot the names of the chemicals, but that are rather unimportant details I think.

  2. Great video. My only annoyance is that it's wrong about needing 3GB of storage, it would only take 1.53MB. One of four possible nucleobases needs 2 bits of storage, so a base pair needs 4 bits of storage. 3,200,000 base pairs means 1,600,000 bytes, 1,562.5 kilobytes, or 1.53 megabytes would be needed.
