Biocompatible deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), with high mechanical strength, was employed as the substrate for a Ag nanowire (Ag NW) pattern and then used to fabricate flexible resistor-type memory devices. The memory exhibited typical write-once-read-many (WORM)-type memory features with a high ON/OFF ratio (104), long-term retention ability (104 s) and excellent mechanical endurance.
