  5. I work in a clinical lab and stumbled across DNA Art like this. I was hoping to find more information in regard to the primers used during PCR and the length of the DNA fragments. I found one that has 11 fragments in the bands, and it looks similar to the bands created from the ΦX174 DNA-HaeIII enzyme. That one is used by http://dnaartonline.com to create themed art by isolating certain genetic traits.
