I Gene

The I Gene project tries to combine the ancient Chinese oracle I Ging with modern Life Science. A formal similarity between the I Ging and the Genetic Code in terms of Hexagrams/Codons is used for visualization of genetic information (DNA sequence). A possible relation between codon position in a cubic table based on I Ging and the spatial folding of proteins - as postulated by Karsten K. Panzer PerZan is evaluated by comparing the result of an I Gene based prediction and chrystallographic data.

The exhibition I Gene visions was open to public at

FH Bonn-Rhein-Sieg - University for Applied Sciences, Grantham-Allee 20, 53757 St. Augustin, Germany,

from Jan. 09 through Mar. 27, 2000.
