What is DNA, you say?

“Well DNA is something we all have.  It’s shaped like a twisted ladder, also called a double helix.  DNA is in cells.  DNA is an important thing in our bodies.  DNA can also copy itself.   DNA gives instructions for making molecules called proteins.  DNA is made of only four subunits.  The four bases are adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine.”   Laurel B.

“Well it’s lots of things.  It looks like a twisted ladder, and it’s in the nucleus.  DNA tells what cells look like…  A chromosme is made up of DNA and protein.  Every chromosome has an enourmous amount of DNA in it. Those are some things that make DNA special. ”  Elle P.

We all have DNA. DNA is very important to have. DNA has two long chains of nucelotides twisted like a ladder. The proper name for it is the Double Helix. DNA is like a recipe of what you’re going to look like. This recipe is used in cells to make protein. DNA is made of four subunits. They are, Adenine, Thymine, Guanine, and cytosine. This is the reason why we have DNA, and also some things that it does.
