The show started last week and is a group show I am in with 5 other artists at the Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury. We have been collaborating with the University of Kent Bio science dept for nearly a year and a half on this project and is based on the 30th anniversary of the PCR machine. The machine is basically a little oven and is used to amplify segments of DNA. Because significant amounts of a sample of DNA are necessary for molecular and genetic analyses, studies of isolated pieces of DNA are nearly impossible without PCR amplification. Often heralded as one of the most important scientific advances in molecular biology, PCR revolutionized the study of DNA to such an extent that its creator, Kary B. Mullis, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1993. Apparently he was a good surfer as well.
