Your DNA: Three Billion Letters of You
August 14, 2020 3:00pm Online
Our fragile thread of DNA binds us to the rest of life on Earth and reveals what goes wrong in genetic disease.
Your DNA (your Book of Life) contains over 3 billion letters, that is enough to fill a million pages of text. These letters are almost exactly the same for everyone, yet we are all different and some differences can be traced to single letter changes. From our reading of DNA it is clear how we are all related, not just to each other, but to all life on Earth. It is also becoming clear how differences in our DNA affect us and change our risk of disease.
