This is part of a series of 'DNA' quilts that use hexagons and colors to represent the bases. The first in the series did not try to represent real sequence, but just represented the double helix shape. A more complex one that is still in progress incorporates sequence and a mutation of academic importance to my colleagues. The current iteration, IPP (isoleucine-proline-proline), is simpler, and represents a tripeptide (3 amino acid 'protein') that occurs in milk and has physiologic function. This one and its companion, GSH (glutathione), were made for show and sale in the Baylor College of Medicine Graduate Student Art Show and Auction. Proceeds benefit Texas Children's Hospital.
