Friday Fun: Quilting the Genome

genome quiltSo, in the spirit of friday fun where we’ve done  puzzles, genome music and other fun stuff (so, ok, not always on Friday), I thought I’d show you an interesting site: Genome Quilts. The creator of these quilts created a one genome quilt legendsquare pattern for each nucleotide and then quilts these squares in order of a particular gene (the one to the left is this one I believe). So, as an example she posts what I’ve included on the right. Some beautiful quilts. Genomics can be beautiful. So, now I’m thinking, I like to knit… I wonder what patterns I could do for nucleotides or amino acids… hmm, could be a mess, or beautiful. I’ll have to think about that one.
