15681. DNA nucleotides represented as wooden tiles
Changes in the DNA are reflected in the protein product. There is a correlation between what happens to the genetic sequence and the resulting protein sequence.
16493. Concept 22: DNA words are three letters long.
Three DNA nucleotides form a codon and specifiy amino acids.
15577. Paper stack (Human Genome)
As represented by this huge stack of paper, the human genome contains more than three billion nucleotides or DNA "letters."

16515. Animation 23: A gene is a discrete sequence of DNA nucleotides.
Fred Sanger outlines DNA sequencing.
Because it contains the directions for assembling the components of the cell, DNA is often thought of as the "instruction book" for assembling life.
15513. How many bases code for an amino acid?, 3D animation with basic narration
DNA has four "letters" that must specify the 20 different amino acids that make up proteins. Combinatorially, using three DNA letters for one amino acid makes the most sense.
555. Model Organisms
A human is a complicated organism, and it is considered unethical to do many kinds of experiments on human subjects. For these reasons, biologists often use simpler “model” organisms that are easy to keep and manipulate in the laboratory.
16514. Concept 23: A gene is a discrete sequence of DNA nucleotides.
Gene analysis take a giant leap using DNA sequencing.

Erwin Chargaff was the first to accurately measure nucleotide amounts in DNA.
