r/worldnews – Scientists achieve true random number generation using new DNA synthesis method

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)

Researchers have generated a huge true random number using DNA synthesis.

Either the intricacies of nature or the synthesis method deployed led to the bases G and T being integrated more frequently in the molecules than A and C. Nonetheless, the scientists were able to correct this bias with a simple algorithm, thereby generating perfect random numbers.

The main aim of the researchers was to show that random occurrences in chemical reaction can be exploited to generate perfect random numbers.
