The growing adoption of AI and data analytics in various sectors has resulted in digital preservation emerging as a cross-sectoral problem that affects everyone from data-driven enterprises to memory institutions alike. As all contemporary storage media suffer from fundamental density and durability limitations, researchers have started investigating new media that can offer highdensity, long-term preservation of digital data. In the European
Union-funded Future and Emerging Technologies project OligoArchive, we are exploring one such media, namely, synthetic Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid (DNA). In this paper, we provide an overview of the ongoing collaboration between project OligoArchive and the Danish National Archive in preserving culturally important digital data with synthetic DNA.
