In this interactive activity from the University of Utah, explore DNA and the role it plays in determining how our bodies function and what traits we have. In all organisms, the instructions for creating cell structures and for driving vital processes such as cell division are encoded in the chemical language of DNA. Take a tour of the basics of genetics and learn about DNA, genes, chromosomes, proteins, and inheritance.
