My thinking: QuoteThe haploid human genome occupies a total of just over 3 billion DNA base pairs. Human genome (Wikipedia)DNA consists of combinations of 4 different base pairs that are able to be encoded as 2 binary bits (ie, 4 = 2▓, where the base of 2 indicates "binary" and the power of ▓ indicates number of bits). Thus, 3,000,000,000 base pairs → 1,500 Mega bits1,500 Mega bits ≈ 100 MB of 16-bit words, 50 MB of 32-bit words, and 25 MB of 64-bit words.
