Dark Zone Notecards

This set of six unique designs visualize the dark zones of our genomes — regions that hide structural variation. But there isn’t anything shadowy going on! 

The regions are “dark” because the many duplicated chunks of genetic sequence and long repetitive elements are challenging to map. Deciphering the zones is essential for improving the health of people alive today, and the role genetic variation played in human evolution. 

Are you curious to know more? Look on the back of each notecard for an explanation of the image on the front. They’re made to ignite curiosity about the basic research that lights up your genome with new knowledge.

What’s included: One package contains six notecards and six white envelopes. The cards are blank on the inside. Shipping is free.

Size: The notecards measure 4.25 x 5.5-inches.
