DNA Storage: Science and Art

DNA holds information about our biological past, present and future. DNA is your genetic history; the best way to preserve it is by storing your DNA for later analysis.

Storing your DNA can help your family in future as genetic testing becomes more affordable, new genes are discovered, and new tests and technologies become available.

You can store DNA at home, in a safe deposit box, or some companies will store it for you.

DNA is usually obtained through a quick and painless swabbing of mouth lining. The swab is sent to the DNA company for analysis and storage. Most companies send you a summary DNA analysis card for you to keep.

There are several companies that are making beautiful art prints out of the DNA results. No two art prints are alike. They come in a variety of colors and display options.
