My Gene Image DNA Art

A company named My Gene Image promises to turn your DNA into a work of art you can hang in your home. Katherine Sutton explains the process on
The process was simple, to my delight. A few clicks on the website to select color and dimensions, a swab of my cheek on a little gray stick returned by mail, and I was soon presented with my one-of-kind, sophisticated piece, a canvas of the letters A, G, C, and T on a Matrix-like design. (For those of you who need a brief refresher-My Gene Image explains: "DNA can be thought of as the building blocks of life. It is made of sugars and phosphate. On each sugar, there is one of four bases attached: A, G, C, or T.")
Prices for the artwork range from $120 to $499 depending on size. The FAQ on the company's website promises your DNA will be destroyed after the product has been shipped.
