The basic structure of DNA.[1]

In acronyms, DNA (TR:5) (LH:11) (TL:16) is short for deoxyribonucleic acid, is the genetic material of most organisms. []


In 1953, Francis Crick, together with James Watson, discovered the molecular structure of the DNA, the molecular structure of the gene.


The following are quotes:

“The ‘central dogma’ of molecular biology, which states that the information upon which the chemistry of life depends is provided by the genetic material DNA. But the refusal of biologists to regress further than this point and to confront the question as to where the information contained in DNA came from in the first place has, according to Stephen Black [1972], reintroduced a quasi-vitalism in to biology.”
