- n. A nucleic acid that carries the genetic information in the cell and is capable of self-replication and synthesis of RNA. 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.

“The matter of information storage in DNA is not explained by a chemical association existing among a subset of amino acids.”
“Stephen Meyer argues that the evidence of symbolic coding within DNA is consistent with the only observed causal source known to give rise to it i.e. conscious intelligence.”
“In his book The Making of the Fittest, Sean Carroll writes “the degree of similarity in DNA is an index of the [evolutionary] relatedness of species.””
“As Zach points out, coding in DNA is a chemical reaction too.”
“Perhaps our present and hopefully fleeting inability to quantify Information contained in DNA is due to our lack of thinking in multiple dimensions.”
“Using this definition, the amount of information in DNA is independant of what it codes for, or even whether it codes for something at all.”
“My explanation for the appearance of design in DNA is the classic evolutionary one.”
“UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Before the break, we asked what does the term DNA stand for?”
“It's become a part of the American vocabulary. but what does the term DNA stand for?”
