Abstract:

The interaction between art and science was explored in science lessons. A group of undergraduate students studying chemical engineering at the Autonomous University of Yucatan learned genetics through art. They made contemporary artwork about DNA and created personal visions of it from genetic data using scientific and artistic knowledge. The students welcomed this unconventional exercise that developed the creative and abstract thinking capacities needed in both subjects.
