DNA Art…- 07.25.05
Your DNA, beautifully visualized and glicee printed on canvas… While i’m in love with the idea, and gorgeous implementation, you can’t help but wonder, is this like putting your credit card number on the wall? Assuming you have neighbors with the scientific power to clone you from the painting? Ok, all random possibilities aside, DNA11 has really done something interesting here.
In a nutshell, you send in a saliva sample, and choose color scheme… wait and recieve your dna as art. via Reluct & Mocoloco
Sorry… but if I remember correctly your DNA is simply cut at a certain sequence pattern along the length of the strands, and the various sized chunks travel varying distances down the gel, creating a relatively unique pattern, much like an MD5 sum. This process is, as far as I understand, impossible to reverse engineer back into a proper sequence.

Hi, this is Adrian from DNA 11. I’m one of the co-founders. Thanks for posting our art on your blog.
To answer your comment about security and privacy: we take it very seriously. One thing to keep in mind is that we have specifically selected a method that creates an orignal “genetic fingerprint” that is artistically valid but does not reveal any genetic information that can be used to identify you in any way. We also use a very well respected and secure lab facility to extract each sample. Any more questions? Visit our FAQ section or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,

Nice art, but way too expensive!. There’s an alternative that offers you highest quality, lowest prices and maximum flexibility. The
