Did you know?
Our Opinions
Did You Know ??
Humans and
share about 40-50% common DNA
Why do we need DNA?
Did you know?
We share about 70% of our DNA with a
Who discovered it?
What is it?
DNA was discovered by Dr James Watson along with Professor Francis Crick
He is an American molecular biologist, geneticist, and zoologist, but is mainly known for discovering the structure of DNA
When was it discovered?
In 1953, based on evidence that was provided by James Watson and Francis Crick the first accurate model of DNA which is now accepted as the first accurate model of DNA structure in the journal Nature.
A nucleic acid that carries the genetic information in the cell and is capable of self-replication and synthesis of RNA (Ribonucleic acid, a nucleic acid present in all living cells). DNA consists of two long chains of nucleotides twisted into a double helix and joined by hydrogen bonds between the complementary bases adenine and thymine or cytosine and guanine. The sequence of nucleotides determines individual hereditary characteristics.

DeoxyriboNucleic Acid
Francis Crick
Francis Crick was an molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist, and is known for discovering DNA along with James D. Watson.

You have
DNA in common with a chimpanzee
If you could type 60 words per minute, eight hours a day, it would take you approximately 50 years to type the human gene
