DNA art by DNA 11 - InfraredThis week is National Biotechnology Week in Canada and seeing as how we’re a company that relies on DNA it seems like something worth celebrating.

Our business wouldn’t exist without biotechnology, and the ambitious idea to sequence the human genome back in 1990, with the creation of the Human Genome Project, further helped to popularize DNA in society .

Now, thanks to biotechnology, not only do we get great, original artwork on our walls but we get lots of other cools things like cures to major diseases, improved crops and better plot lines for TV crime dramas.

Canada’s bio-economy is worth over $84 billion, or more than 6.5 per cent of its GDP, and supports more than 1 million jobs.

BIOTECanada, the national non-profit association dedicated to building the bio-based economy in Canada, has a great website up for National Biotechnology Week at: www.imagenenation.ca.

And of course there is no better way to celebrate National Biotechnology Week than to capture your own DNA on canvas with one of our original DNA Portraits.

The modern pet portrait by DNA 11 is featured in a recent People Pets article that highlights what people are doing with Pet DNA.

DNA 11 has been creating unique art pieces from the DNA of dogs, cats, horses, and even a Bengal tiger at the request of our customers since its inception in 2005.

Adrian one of the co-founders actually had a DNA Pet Portrait created of his own dog Bosley, and hangs it proudly at home.

“Bosley lays for a quick snapshot in front of his very own DNA portrait.”

It’s that time of year again – time to go out and find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Whether it’s a Valentine’s gift for him or for her; this year is the year to move past the classic chocolate, candles, and flowers by finding something you know they’ll remember for years to come.

Lately the biggest craze has been finding your loved one that perfect personalized gift and for years this meant a key chain with a name engraved or the ever popular “World’s Best Boyfriend” mug. Well, lately the bar has been raised and now you can name a star after your loved one  or even purchase them an acre of land on the Moon with the Lunar Registry.

Although both are really cool concepts – do you think that we’ll be packing up and moving to the Moon to make use of that acre any time soon? That I’ll leave to you… But while you think about it… why not find the ideal Valentine’s Day gift personalized for him or for her with a piece of personalized DNA Art from DNA 11.

The DNA Mini Portrait is a great gift for the man looking for the latest in decor as it brings together art, technology, and pop culture at an affordable price. Measuring just 8”x10” the DNA Mini Portrait is perfect for the office or on a bedside table.
KISS Portrait
And for the perfect gift for her this Valentine’s give her more than just a kiss… immortalize it with the KISS Portrait, from DNA 11. Add your lips and her lips on the same canvas and choose from lots of color combinations and sizes. DNA 11 has partnered with M·A·C Cosmetics and a portion of the sale of every KISS Portrait will go towards the M·A·C AIDS Fund.

So now you’re probably asking yourself how you surprise someone with a portrait like this, and on top of that, how do you get someone’s DNA or lip print without them knowing? Not to worry, that’s been thought of too and it couldn’t be easier. No, you won’t have to sneak into their bathroom and take a piece of hair from her brush or secretly find a way of getting the lip print.

All you have to do is order the gift kit; complete with a DNA gift card, instructions, collection kit and everything else they need to get started on the piece you selected. It even comes in a nice metal box so they have something to open on Valentine’s. If you really aren’t sure what they want you can order gift certificates too. It will be sent over to you for wrapping or sent right to your loved one by mail, or even by email, with a message from you.

So this Valentine’s Day forget the bubble bath and the roses. Find your loved ones a truly personalized, one a kind gift and buy some DNA Art from DNA 11. There is still plenty of time to order and have your perfect gift ready before Valentine’s Day.
