SAN DIEGO, Oct. 2 MyGeneImage introduces a new andinnovative way to personalize artwork. The company creates unique works ofart through the use of DNA sequence and genetic codes. DNA extracted fromindividual cheek-swab samples is used to generate original expressions of artfor individuals from newborns to grandparents, and every age in between.
How it Works
The process of generating the DNA Art is simple. By request throughMyGeneImage.com, individuals receive a Sample Collection Package includingtools to swab the inside of the cheek to collect buccal cells, which hold thebody's DNA. The collection process is easy and painless, and is completed bysimply pressing the collector against the inside of the cheek several times.The customer then sends the collector back to the MyGeneImage laboratory (inthe provided pre-paid overnight envelope), where the DNA is extracted andgenerated into a fascinating piece of genetic art. The art creation processtakes only two weeks.
Individuals help define their own pieces of art by selecting the specificgene sequence that is used in the final piece, as well as the design,background color and size of the artwork. Customers select one of three formsof DNA Art: myArtwork, reflections of the individual's gene sequence displayedin picturesque art; myCrystal, DNA sequence engraved inside a crystalstructure with the 2D or 3D picture of the individual; or myGenetic ID, theultimate identification card with genetic markers to truly distinguish anindividual from others.
Why DNA Art?
