Sutra to DNA : An interdisciplinary approach to cultural heritage preservation
Materials pertaining to the project Sutra2DNA. We have chosen the Diamond Sūtra as the first Buddhist text to be encoded in DNA. The DNA is encased in metal capsule, which in turn are housed in specially designed, 3D printed miniature stūpas.
A QR code with the DOI of this archive will be printed on the miniature stūpas. Interested finders who have arrived here because of the QR code should first read the final report of the project.
The upload contains the following files:
Explains the project and outcome.
The Chinese text of the Diamond Sūtra as provided to the encoder.
* Twist-Decoding Instructions-DS14.pdf
Contains some of the decoding options available in 2022.
Docker file with the decoder for the DNA sequence as provided by TwistBioscience.
Three files to 3D print the three parts of the miniature stūpa that houses the capsule with the DNA.
