Wait, 1.5mg per petabyte at large scales? Wouldn't that mean a gram could hold (1000/1.5) 667 petabytes and presumably scalable to many grams (eventually)? I understand it's only 650kB right now, but the density is obviously still incredible.

yes. density is astounding. that's why it's in science i presume. mostly because people forget how dense dna information really is.
