Do you need to save actual DNA? Why not sequence the DNA and back up the data?

Perhaps the title of the article is misleading and they want to save more than just the DNA, maybe whole frozen organisms?

The other thing is that it is pointless to store anything unless you have a means of using what is stored. Has anyone created a living organism from the frozen samples they propose to store? With no proof of concept demo, no one will seriously fund this.
