Question:
What is DNA?

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is the body's genetic 'blueprint'. It is a long thread-like molecule which carries the 'genetic code' that determines our individual characteristics. DNA is found in almost all of the billions of cells that make up our body. Every child inherits a unique mixture of DNA from its parents so, with the exception of genetically identical twins, no two people in the world have exactly the same genetic code.
