You are unique and so is your DNA.
Every individual has a unique DNA code obtained in equal amounts from both biological parents. An individual’s DNA code is found in every cell of their body.
What is DNA?
DNA is an acronym for Deoxyribonucleic Acid. Your DNA is known as the code of life. Every individual has a unique DNA code obtained from both biological parents. An individual’s DNA code is found in every cell of their body.
What are genes?
Genes are segments of DNA. Each gene serves as an instruction manual for making a single protein. You have two copies of most genes, one inherited from your mother and one from your father.
You can find out more about proteins below.
Why are proteins so important to your DNA?
Proteins are your body’s main building materials that form a cell’s structural components and enzymes. Proteins cannot make copies of themselves. When a cell needs more proteins, it uses the manufacturing instructions coded in genes.
What are nucleotides?
Nucleotides are the scientific name for the building blocks of DNA. These form the DNA sequence that spell out the instructions for forming proteins. There are four nucleotides abbreviated with the letters A, T, C, and G. This report tests which nucleotides you have at specific locations in your genes.
What is a base pair?
Your DNA is double stranded. This means that you have two complementary DNA sequences that encode the same information. Each nucleotide on one strand has a complementary nucleotide on the opposite strand that it binds to.
What is polymorphism?
Each person’s DNA has a slightly different sequence. A polymorphism is when there is a part of the DNA sequence that differs between people.
What are alleles?
Most polymorphisms have two possible variations. Each one of these variant sequences in a gene is called an allele. Because you have two copies of most genes, you may have two different alleles, or two copies of the same allele.
What are chromosomes?
Human DNA comes in the form of tightly coiled strands, called chromosome, which are found inside the cell nucleus. There are 46 chromosomes in a human cell arranged in pairs, for a total of 23 pairs. We refer to the first 22 chromosome pairs as Autosomal, and these genetic records are numbered 1 through 22. The last pair are sex chromosomes, either XY for males or XX for females.
