What Data Does Sperm Contain

Very interesting piece of data I came across today. We all, (mostly I’m referring to Science students), know that sperms are carriers of DNA information, which are passed on to generations come.

Now did anyone every wonder, how much information was being carried forward ?

I was shocked to read about this research which says – “A single sperm has 37.5MB of DNA information in it. That means that a normal ejaculation represents a data transfer of 1,587.5TB:”

Interesting fact isn’t it ? You might want to involve in the conversation on reddit – 🙂
