Scientists at the University of Vienna have achieved a significant milestone in DNA technology, introducing a breakthrough that expands the color spectrum available for DNA-based images. 

Traditionally, DNA was confined to a palette of 256 colors, limiting its capacity for visual representation. However, this latest advancement shatters those constraints, enabling the generation of an astonishing 16 million colors.

By leveraging these expanded color possibilities, researchers can now "paint" intricate images on a compact 2D surface, reproducing digital images with an impressive 24-bit color depth. This breakthrough could find applications in various scientific disciplines, from genomics to nanotechnology.
