Keywords  DNA, coding

Melpomeni Dimopoulou received her engineering diploma from the “Computer Engineering and Informatics Department” at the University of Patras in Greece in 2016. In 2016-2017 she pursued her studies in the Master program of “Computational Biology and Biomedicine” at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in France and obtained a Master’s degree. In the context of her studies she did her internship in the I3S laboratory working with the team of Mediacoding on the application of Leaky Integrate-and-Fire neurons on signal and image processing. Currently she is a PhD student of the Mediacoding Team working on the subject “DNA coding for long term digital data storage” in a collaboration with the IPMC laboratory, under the supervision of Marc Antonini and Pascal Barbry. This work aims to explore the use of the DNA as a mean of long-life digital data storage achieving high data compression due to the DNA’s biological properties.
