        Thanks for the memory with your DNA in tree
        (Filed: 26/05/2003)
        Two art students are planning to grow trees containing the genetic identity
        of human beings.The idea is to replace the unused "junk" DNA in trees with
        entire human genomes. Scientists have advised the pair that it is perfectly
        feasible.The "humanised" trees would be unaffected by the change, but still
        carry
        the biological essence of the DNA donors. One possibility envisaged is that
        the
        trees could replace gravestones as a way of preserving the memory of loved
        ones.If an apple tree was used, it would provide an edible as well as a
        visible
        reminder. Like the tree, the fruit would contain human DNA."Implanting your
        grandmother's DNA into an apple tree brings a whole new meaning to the
        phrase
        'Granny Smith'," said Georg Tremmel, an Austrian studying design at the
        Royal
        College of Art in London.



        What would Tolkien have said? "Old Man Willow, return to the foul place of
        your heritage."

        Or Lewis, with his dryads? "Not even the White witch was this crazy."

        How would the human genome express in these trees? Very strange. ---djb
