DNA Art based on the Human Genome Sequence

In a collaboration between scientists, bioinformaticists and artists, Yonder has conceived a work where the vastness of information that encodes human life is transformed into a familiar everyday measurement.

Yonder Biology today presents a web-based exhibition of a human genome in the dimension of time. The exhibition from Yonder is titled 'A Complete Genome in Time'. The human haploid genome is ~3.2 billion nucleotides (the individual units of DNA) -- represented by the letters A, C, G and T. How large is the Human Genome in days? 'A Complete Genome in Time' (ACGT) will take one year to cycle through the human genome sequence. Yonder’s ACGT exhibition will read approximately 100 bases per second for 365 days and display all of the genomic information contained within a single human genome.

"In a collaboration between scientists, bioinformaticists and artists, Yonder has conceived a work where the vastness of information that encodes human life is transformed into a familiar everyday measurement." said Andy Bass, Co-Founder of Yonder Biology. "DNA is the substance for most of our art at Yonder. The ACGT exhibition is our next step as we begin to look at the DNA code for our design projects in DNA Art as well as Bio Art.

'A Complete Genome in Time' began on June 28th, 2012 at 12:07am and will end one year later on June 28th 2013. Learn more at A Complete Genome in Time. Welcome to a world of nucleotides!

About Yonder

Yonder Biology, a DNA Art company with an art gallery and laboratory in San Diego, California, unites science and art. The DNA code is unique to each individual. Yonder's scientists interpret the DNA code and resident artists use the interpretation to create original works of art. Each DNA portrait displays a unique pattern revealing a new form of individual expression.
