Introduction and Summary: Researchers are developing a way to store an exabyte of data—roughly a million terabyte-sized hard drives—in a blob of DNA.

DOCUMENT

Synthetic Biology and Biotech: As genetic material that contains instructions for making proteins, messenger RNA is revolutionizing vaccine development.

DOCUMENT

Agriculture: The availability of sensors, new types of irrigation, improved lighting, and more efficient ways to capture and process data promise to modernize and decentralize the agricultural sector.

DOCUMENT

Applications and Key Questions: The intersection of technology, agriculture, and biotech impacts every business, because ultimately these trends influence the future of life. Chief strategy officers should begin to plan for next-order changes on the horizon.
