The complete mapping of the human genome, is the transliteration of  biological information in to the cultural domain. The informational structure of the human genome sees a close parallelism to the digital systems’ essence. The genome and the digital nature have the same peculiarities in their skill to “in-form”, give a form.
Our chromosomes are archives like storage devices, and as in the digital domain, it is possible to modify the information.
HGP card ironically presents an improbable hybridization between the biological and digital codes.
With the digital code it could be possible to reprogram one’s own genome, ingesting digital memory (SD card) that contains the transcription of a human genome.
