Redhead Genome Project Scarf
Do you knit? Is your girl geek a readhead?
She Dances in Dragon designed and knitted a scarf based on the DNA sequence of the MCR1 gene
, a variant of which is responsible for red hair in humans. Each base - A, C, G, or T - in the sequence is a different color, making a colorful grid pattern. SDiD has kindly shared the pattern:
text part of the scarf
DNA sequence part 1
DNA sequence part 2
It would be a fabulous homemade gift for any geeky redhead in your life!
