When I learned what deoxyribonucleic acid was I knew it would change the world.

I ask everyone who graduated before DNA was taught in high school biology to study the chapters on DNA, protein, protein synthesis and you will understand.

As we learn what each gene does we will learn about bodily processes we have no concept of now.
