The Elizabeth Swann cruising along the Amazon to Manaus



The ARK is the world's largest DNA database. The life's work of John Storm, in his obsession to understand and catalogue life in Earth. The Ark works particularly well with Hal, the onboard AI, linked via the Elizabeth Swann's management system.


With all systems working together, John is able to decode the genome of any patient, and create a CRISP virus to modify the genes of an animal or human. The latest discovery being that he can cure cancer in some subjects. The system can also be used to enhance animals genetically. As such, John knows he is the guardian of an amazing technology, that should not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.


This system, is compatible with the very latest innovations in synthetic-genetic engineering. Converting the DNA four letter code, to binary. The system can also reverse, to create a modified genome, or the original biological sample. But, it uses a lot of computing power and storage space. For this reason, when John comes into possession of the CyberCore Genetica™ super nano-computer, the system gets a much needed upgrade. Much to the relief of the overworked AI Hal.


Hal is the onboard supercomputer that manages the ship's systems, security and safety features. Hal is an artificially intelligent AI crew member, self learning, and friends with John and Dan, But especially close with John, who is able to communicate via his CyberCore™ nano-computer and BioCore™ brain implant. The Ark is part of this alliance.


The 'Elizabeth Swann' is a solar assisted, hydrogen powered ship that is thought to be the fastest in the world, and the most advanced technologically. She was inspired by the character, Elizabeth Swann, in the Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies, (played by Keira Knightley). Though, we know of a lady of the same name who lives in England.


The Swann is equipped with a stunning array of ocean instruments, that makes her invaluable for underwater surveys and other surface marine tasks, under the command of her rugged ocean conservationist captain: John Storm. A man of many talents, who becomes physically and mentally enhanced during his adventures.


The Elizabeth Swann is autonomously piloted by Captain Nemo, named after the Captain of the Nautilus in Jules Verne's classic: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. A stand alone unmanned navigation system. 





Super nano computers are devices that use nanotechnology to perform computations at the molecular scale. Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter at the atomic or molecular level, and it has many potential applications in various fields, such as medicine, bio-engineering, and electronics.

One of the possible applications of nanotechnology is to create super nano computers that can analyze DNA. DNA is the molecule that carries the genetic information of living organisms, and it consists of four types of nucleotides: adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine ©, and guanine (G). These nucleotides form pairs (A-T and C-G) and are arranged in a double helix structure. The sequence of nucleotides in a DNA molecule determines the traits and functions of an organism.

Super nano computers could analyze DNA by using various methods, such as:

- DNA sequencing: This is the process of determining the order of nucleotides in a DNA molecule. Super nano computers could use techniques such as nanopore sequencing, which involves passing a DNA strand through a tiny hole and measuring the changes in electric current as each nucleotide passes through. This could allow for faster and cheaper DNA sequencing than conventional methods.


- DNA computing: This is the use of DNA molecules as a medium for computation. Super nano computers could use DNA as a form of logic gates, which are the basic units of digital circuits. For example, a DNA strand could be designed to bind to another strand only if certain conditions are met, such as the presence or absence of specific nucleotides. This could create a binary output of 1 or 0, depending on whether the strands bind or not. This could enable super nano computers to perform complex calculations using DNA as a programmable material.


- DNA origami: This is the art of folding DNA molecules into various shapes and structures. Super nano computers could use DNA origami to create nanoscale devices, such as sensors, motors, and robots. For example, a DNA origami device could be designed to change its shape in response to a specific stimulus, such as a chemical signal or a light pulse. This could create a dynamic and functional nanomachine that could perform tasks such as detection, delivery, or assembly.


These are some of the ways that super nano computers could analyze DNA and use it for various purposes. However, these methods are still in the experimental stage and face many challenges and limitations, such as the accuracy, stability, scalability, and compatibility of the nanodevices. Therefore, more research and development are needed to realize the full potential of super nano computers and DNA analysis.
