A year and three months later I’m starting to put a little artistic effort into decorating my apartment. Ten points to anybody who can figure out what this is supposed to be! That’s right, my art means something. In fact it even looks like what it’s supposed to look like in two ways, which I think is pretty cool, but I’m a big geek like that.

Hint: You biology or biochem types are definitely familiar with it, and quite possibly even in the way it’s displayed, in an abstract kind of way of course.

    Ten points for Audrey!

    It is gel electrophoresis. I thought DNA art like this was cool but way too expensive, so I made my own.

    The second way it’s DNA is that the exact patterns come from the picture of DNA in the arecibo message that was beamed into space. Each square is one nucleotide.

    Now who’s an overachiever? And I’m not even in biology!
