Seattle researchers make science history by encoding Miles Davis, Deep Purple songs onto DNA

Pencil and test tube of DNA
Ten terabytes of data can be stored in the pink smear of DNA at the end of this test tube. That’s the equivalent of 600 basic smartphones. (University of Washington Photo / Tara Brown)

In a first for science, researchers from the University of Washington, Microsoft and Twist Bioscience have stored archival-quality recordings of audio on DNA.

It’s just one of several milestones in DNA storage that the researchers have passed in the last few years. UW and Microsoft researchers started the work with cat pictures and other images last year and quickly broke a record by storing 200 megabytes of data on DNA, including a music video by the band OK Go.

Twist Bioscience, a San Francisco-based biotech company, joined the party earlier this year. The basic idea is that the base pairs in DNA, which normally store genetic material, can be repurposed to store terabytes worth of data more efficiently than man-made storage systems.

The lucky songs in the most recent milestone are “Tutu” by legendary jazz musician Miles Davis and “Smoke on the Water” by English rock group Deep Purple. The original recordings were part of the Montreux Jazz Festival archive, which is also where the new DNA-encoded versions will live.

Not only is the milestone a big moment for scientists, it’s also a huge event for archivists. Normally, archived recordings need to be replaced every 10 years, but the DNA-stored songs can go millennia without changing so much as a byte.

also gives admins the chance to explore Azure’s capabilities and determine other ways the cloud can assist the business.

A DevTest Lab in Azure puts a virtual machine in the cloud to verify developer code before it moves to the organization’s test environment. This practice unveils initial bugs before operations starts an assessment. DevTest Labs gives organizations a way to investigate the Microsoft cloud platform and its compute services, without incurring a large monthly cost. Look at Azure DevTest Labs as a way to augment internal tests — not replace them.

Part one of this two-part series explains Azure DevTest Labs and how to configure a VM for lab use. In part two, we examine the benefits of a testing cloud-based environment.

DevTest Labs offers a preliminary look at code behavior

After we create a lab with a server VM, connect to it using the same tools as you would in an on-premises environment — Visual Studio or Remote Desktop for Windows VMs and Secure Socket Shell for Linux VMs. Development teams can push the code to an internal repository connected to the Azure environment and then deploy it to the DevTest Lab VM.

Use the DevTest Lab VM to check what happens to the code:

  • when no modifications have been made to infrastructure; and
  • if the application runs on different versions of an OS.

Windows Server VMs in Azure provide uniformity

An organization’s test environment often has stipulations, such as a requirement to mirror the production Windows Servers through the last patch cycle, which can hinder the development process. Azure DevTest Labs uncovers how applications behave on the latest Windows Server version. This prepares IT for any issues before the internal testing environment moves to that server OS version. IT also can use DevTest Labs to check new features of an OS before they roll it out to production.

DevTest Labs assists admins who want to study for a certification and need a home lab environment to practice and study. But building a home lab is expensive when you consider costs for storage, server hardware and software. Virtualized labs with VMware Workstation or Client Hyper-V reduce this cost, but it’s still expensive to buy a powerful laptop that can handle all the new technologies in a server OS.

Admins can stand up Windows Server 2016 in DevTest Labs to understand the capabilities of the OS and set up an automatic shutdown time. This gives employees access to capable systems for after-hours studying, and the business only pays for the time the lab runs.

Azure DevTest Labs doesn’t replace on-premises testing

Many organizations have replica environments that mirror production sites, which ensures any fixes and changes will function properly when they go live. Azure DevTest Labs should not replace an on-premises test environment.

Steps to produce an Azure DevTest
Lab.

Implement DevTest Labs to prevent testing delays; start work in DevTest Labs, which refine the items needed from operations. And because Azure is built to scale, users can add resources with a few clicks. An on-premises environment does not have the same flexibility to grow on demand, which can slow the code development process.

Production apps don’t have to stay in Azure

Azure DevTest Labs also checks applications or configurations, and then deploys them into the company’s data center. When the test phase of development passes, shut down the DevTest Lab until it is needed again.

In addition, IT teams can turn to DevTest Labs to showcase how the business can use Azure cloud. If the company wants to work with a German organization, for example, it must contend with heavy regulations about how data is handled and who owns it. Rather than build a data center in Germany, which could be cost-prohibitive, move some apps into an Azure region that covers the European Union or Germany. This is much less expensive because the business only pays for what it uses.

Still, regulatory issues override all the good reasons to use Azure. If you’re unsure of what regulatory items your organizations needs to know, use this link to get a list. You also can examine Microsoft’s audit reports to perform a risk assessment and see if Azure meets your company’s compliance needs.

Microsoft offers a 30-day free trial of DevTest Labs. It’s a great resource for development and testing, and provides an inexpensive learning environment for administrators who want to explore current and upcoming technologies.

Ensuring high-quality browser accessibility with automation

Over the past few weeks, we’ve shown how Microsoft Edge has been rearchitected to empower developers to build more accessible experiences on the Web with HTML5 and UIA. To support this work, we need to ensure that accessibility is not accidentally regressed as we make other improvements to the browser.

Testing the accessibility implementation of a browser on Windows used to require downloading the tools for the browser you wanted to test and then manually checking each of the requirements of a test suite. To help reduce this overhead, and to ensure we catch regressions before they ship, we created a tool to automate the HTML 5 Accessibility test suite .

What is necessary to automate accessibility

In order to fully test accessibility, you need to not only test the platform to ensure your code is working as expected, but also the bridges between the UIA client and the UIA provider. In order to accomplish this, we built a custom UIA client to iterate over the tests of HTML 5 Accessibility by requesting nodes from the accessibility tree via web driver automation.

The figure below shows the accessibility pipeline from the page source to the user. An HTML element, such as the video element, is converted by Microsoft Edge or another browser into several UI Automation Elements. The video element is the parent of the other elements, which represent the controls, such as the play button or volume slider. Then an assistive technology, such as Narrator, communicates those elements in a way the user can understand, for example by speaking their names aloud. Our automation took the place of the accessibility tool to verify that the rest of the pipeline was working correctly.

Chart showing the accessibility pipeline from the page source to the user. HTML elements are converted into UI Automation elements, which are relayed to assistive technology to be communicated to the user.

Automating the HTML 5 Accessibility tests

Automating these tests requires two types of access to the page. First, we need to be able to simulate user input, such as key presses, which we do through WebDriver. Second, we need to verify that the content of the page is accessible to users of all abilities, which we do through accessibility APIs, such as UI Automation.

It’s important to understand that the DOM tree and the accessibility tree have two different sets of elements, which don’t always have a one-to-one relationship. For example, the video element might not have any children in the DOM tree, but will have several children in the accessibility tree.

First, we walk the accessibility tree to ensure that the element can be found on the page and that it has the right control type. Next, we use WebDriver to tab through all the keyboard-accessible elements. This is important because the web is often a difficult place for keyboard-only users we want them to be able to navigate all sites and access all elements.

Accessibility on Windows goes beyond Microsoft Edge

The work we’ve done has helped us improve accessibility in Microsoft Edge, but we want all users on Windows to have a remarkable accessibility experience, no matter what browser they’re using. To accomplish this, web developers need to ensure their sites are accessible and other browser vendors need to ensure their browsers meet accessibility requirements. To help the community in this endeavor, we are open sourcing our HTML 5 Accessibility test harness code on Github with a MIT license.

As a part of this project, we’ve included a sample branch to help web developers begin to automate accessibility testing of their own sites on browsers that utilize UI Automation clients. You can use it on your site by specifying the URLs you want to test and what needs to be tested on each site. You can learn more about how to test your own site by looking at the site automation readme.

We hope this can be useful to help make your products work for everyone, and we look forward to feedback and contributions from the community!
