Biopresence & Transgenic Tombstones

target=_blank>DIY DNA DAY - if you missed it, was on April 10th and
celebrated at a UK conference with a wide range of biotech and
transgenic art demonstrations and tutorials. Aside from learning how to
extract your own DNA, or the DNA from anything living, attendees were
also introduced to a new way for remembering those who have passed away
- storing their DNA within a living plant! Believing that 'a growing,
living tree has the ability to comfort in a completely different way
than cold gravestones', Georg Tremmel and Shiho Fukuhara of Biopresence
were happy to wax on about their 'Transgenic Tombstones'
