One of our clients Jason Sutton just had his modern home featured in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.¬† Jason’s DNA 11 portrait is placed predominantly within the design of the house and serves as a focal point. The house was designed by John DeForest,¬† a Harvard-trained architect.¬† The “Zipper House” design¬†is a direct reflection of Jason’s laidback¬†personality combining modern elegance and simplicity.

You know you’re becoming part of ‘pop culture’ when you appear on CSI. The producers of CSI: NY contacted us to ask if we wanted to participate in an episode. At first we were a bit concerned how it was going to be used- but we couldn’t say no- we knew it would be a great opportunity to share our idea with the world. In this episode called “What schemes may come” a suspect’s DNA portrait is used to match her DNA to a crime without the need for getting a warrant.¬† This of course could never happenin real life.¬† The images we produce, although generated from our customer’s DNA and completely unique to each individual actually hold no forensically valid¬†data. Also the sequences that we target are not disclosed to anyone outside of our labs.¬† We take mutiple steps to ensure the privacy of our clients.¬† So you¬†don’t need to¬†worry if you’re planning on doing any major crimes. :-)

It was really cool to work with the producers of CSI and to see our art on CSI:NY.  Hopefully we can post a video clip in the next few days.
