    DNA Art Collectors

    We have partnered with Beer DeCoded to bring you rockin' DNA art based on a Bento Lab experiment!

    This poster print will be a DNA portrait of a yeast analysed during the campaign by Gianpaolo from Beer DeCoded with his Bento Lab!

    What’s more, the yeast will come from a beer you can vote on during the month after the campaign. You vote for the beer, Gianpaolo will analyse the yeast and we will turn the experimental result into a design! See an example of what the art could look like below.
