How does our DNA make us unique, and how is this unique genetic information passed on when cells divide?
- Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) molecules are found in chromosomes within all our cells.
- DNA instructs the cell to make specific proteins that determine personality and physical traits.
- Due to a double-helix structure, DNA can replicate itself and its base sequence.
- Each person's DNA contains a unique sequence of base molecules - adenine, thymine, cytosine, guanine.
