DNA Name Bracelet

Craft & Design

What are you looking at? Let’s have Maitreya from Craftlog explain:

The Wikipedia Genetic code entry has a table to break the code or encode your own name (U=>T if you prefer DNA to RNA). Note that not all letters are represented since there are only 20 amino acids plus X for stop. You can also go see if some genome already contains your name, by entering it in this DNA search page. No MAITREYAs yet, but there are still lots of things left to sequence!

What a fun treat for geeks everywhere! Find out more at Craftlog. Link.
