By way of creating a modern tartan, Inglesby’s woven tapestry is made using code from her family’s DNA. From the data collected through DNA Profiling, the genes of each family member are assigned colours and displayed as a grid, making it easy to see inheritance patterns in their genetic make-up. With rapid advances in genetic technology, DNA testing is stepping out of the medical world and being applied to the consumer market. Genetically informed customisation is at our fingertips!
