Here's how to get them for your design.For example,this is an acrylic lasercut data for my Shoji of Methanothermus fervidus.My cat always punches all papers he can,so i'll replace them to DNA engraved acryl to end war.
1.Currently it takes money to know whole sequence of your own DNA.Hopefully may not in close future.
2.You can use already decoded Human genome sample with 33,543,332 digits.

Porcine circovirus(smallest virus): 1,759bp
Human Mitochondria: 16,569bp(13 protein-coding genes)
Candidatus Carsonella ruddii(smallest non-viral): 159,662bp(182 protein genes)
Homo sapiens: 33,543,332bp(about 26,000 protein genes)
and so on.

Step 1: Check Binominal Name
Step 2: Visit NCBI
Visit nucleotide section of National Center for Biotechnology Information,US National Library of Medicine.
Step 3: Search With Query "(Binominal Name)" "complete Genome"
This case,"Z. mays" "complete genome" give you 2 results.2,132,688bp and 3,626,085bp because length of DNA is not unique in one species.
I prefer shorter.Click "FASTA".
Step 4: You Got Code!
You can copy&paste to any editor to make stencil or anything.
If you make something,please notice me by Facebook or "I made it!" above.
