This is one of a new series of images Genome Alberta asked us to create for their Genomics app on Facebook. Facebook users can use this app to exchange virtual genes ranging from the gene that makes blue eye color, to fitness. Here we have two arms intertwined like DNA holding a peanut to signify the Filaggrin gene. Changes in the gene can lead to a range of allergic condition – like asthma, eczema, and the peanut allergy. Done in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
