Each of us has a story.
A story that reads like a work of science fiction, complete with twists and turns.
Each of us was born with a tale of genomic DNA programmed permanently into our bodies. Except this story isn’t told in words, it’s constructed from a sequence of computer code.
Each copy of this code contains our genomic DNA. It holds precisely 3.2 billion letters. Each of us has trillions of copies that make us function over the course of our lives—from birth until death.
- When the scientific society printed one person’s genomic DNA sequence, it filled a small library of 130 volumes. Each volume was printed in 4.5 size font!
- If I were to stretch out all the DNA in your body, it would be long enough to make 7 round trips from the earth to the sun!
