Mind Expansion, mind control? – Storing Data in DNA

If you encoded all of Shakespeare’s works into DNA and injected it into a person, could you turn that person into another Shakespeare?

Would the same work with music, art, inventors, athletes, etc?

Could the concept be used to make people smarter – by adding tons of data to their minds or bloodstreams?  Dumber – by taking away knowledge from their DNA… Thought Thieves?

EXTERNALLY, those influences are already in place: tv media, print media, songs, social engineering.

This would move the mind expansion or mind control INTERNALLY, so would it become more powerful in either direction?
