DNA Explanation

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) tells amino acids how to form themselves into the proteins we need

DNA lives inside the nucleus of a living cell – Containing adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine, commonly abbreviated as A, C, G, and T,

Amino Acids live outside the nucleus in the cytoplasm of the cell.


RNA (ribonucleic acid) a special chemical in the nucleus which make partial copies of parts of the DNA.

There sizes enables them to fit through tiny paws of the nucleus and move into another particle called Ribosome.

Ribosome are protein building machines which read RNA codes and using amino acids build perfectly shapes proteins.

The RNA tells Ribosome which of the 20 different amino acids it needs to produce the protein that is required. It’s like a recipe card and using that card to bake a block.

Process and what happens

Amino Acids – Proteins –  Living Cells – Tissue – Organs

DNA – RNA – Proteins = Life
