    Your Name in IndieBB

    Fancy your name, encoded in DNA, as part of the final IndieBB kit? This perk will win you the exclusive chance to have a (non-expressed) protein-coding sequence that encodes your name (or another message?) included in IndieBB itself, so every kit and everyone's fluorescent cells will have a little bit of you. Please note; the RNA code lacks several letters, but we can use a special encoding format that suits you to fit your message/name in! Comes with the teaching kit for free.
