DNA is a molecule composed of two chains that coil around each other to form a double helix. DNA carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning, and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.
DNA strands are composed of simpler units called nucleotides. Each nucleotide is composed of one of four bases – cytosine (C), guanine (G), adenine (A) or thymine (T) – a sugar (deoxyribose) and a phosphate group. The two DNA strands in the double helix are bound together according to strict base pairing rules (A with T, C with G). Other combinations are not possible.
