This is the equivalent of over 6.2 billion binary bits (ones and zeroes) such as we use in our computers. If you wanted to print this information in book form with 50 characters (ones and zeros) per line, 30 lines per page, and 200 pages per book, it would take over 20,000 volumes, and a very big library, to hold all the information that can be stored in the DNA of one of your cells.
