What a curious question. The purpose of a dictionary is not to save information, but to store data as a key -> value mapping:

    telbook = {}
    telbook["jan"] = "0627832873"
    telbook["mary"] = "050-932390"

Or do you mean 'store' when you mention 'save'?

...and to store a bunch of lines you don't need a dictionary either. A list would do:

info = [
    "#ST[genetic information]",
