DNA disPLAY: BioMod, 2013

DNA disPLAY, a project for BioMod 2013, attempts to take-on the challenge of DNA design by making DNA both physical and visual as a new creative medium. We aim to allow anyone to design with DNA by using easy and powerful software tools with direct ordering of custom DNA sequences and a new process for CNC printing DNA images on paper. This project eliminates the expensive and difficult process of imagining, order and DNA handling for non-experts. In the near future, we imagine that DNA patterns can become microfluidic, diagnostic and electronic displays where the structure of the drawing becomes a computational medium.
