I got this TShirt at FOSDEM, I was told that it means something.
First here is all of the text from the tshirt, which should make the page more discoverable:
Xen Project @FOSDEM 2017 Forging the DNA of the Cloud AGTCTACTCAGCCGTACTTCATCGACTTAGCGTTGTCTCAGC GCTTGTCACGTCCTGCTCGTCAGCTAGCGTCTAAGCTACCTC ACTAGCTGTGCTAGCTAGCGTCTAAGCTCAATCTGTGATTAC
These three strings are a bit unweildly to work with, lets break them down into groups of three.
AGT CTA CTC AGC CGT ACT TCA TCG ACT TAG CGT TGT CTC AGC GCT TGT CAC GTC CTG CTC GTC AGC TAG CGT CTA AGC TAC CTC ACT AGC TGT GCT AGC TAG CGT CTA AGC TCA ATC TGT GAT TAC
Now to wikipedia to get a DNA Codon Table to refer to:
Amino acid Codons Compressed Ala/A GCT GCC GCA GCG GCN Arg/R CGT CGC CGA CGG AGA AGG CGN MGR Asn/N AAT AAC AAY Asp/D GAT GAC GAY Cys/C TGT TGC TGY Gln/Q CAA CAG CAR Glu/E GAA GAG GAR Gly/G GGT GGC GGA GGG GGN His/H CAT CAC CAY Ile/I ATT ATC ATA ATH START ATG Amino acid Codons Compressed Leu/L TTA TTG CTT CTC CTA CTG YTR CTN Lys/K AAA AAG AAR Met/M ATG Phe/F TTT TTC TTY Pro/P CCT CCC CCA CCG CCN Ser/S TCT TCC TCA TCG AGT AGC TCN AGY Thr/T ACT ACC ACA ACG ACN Trp/W TGG Tyr/Y TAT TAC TAY Val/V GTT GTC GTA GTG GTN STOP TAA TGA TAG TAR TRA
I poked at this for ages, I wondered if I had need to the take the codons in as they are written. A column at a time. But even looking at that, there was nothing obvious about the codon sequence.
After a while I started searching for subsequences from the string. This didn't help at all, but one page on google had a related search for ['dna message translator']. Annoyingly I fed in this string:
And got the result:
XEN HACKATHON FORGING THE DNA OF THE CLOUD
