Caption: DNA and human body. Conceptual computer artwork of a man wrapped in a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) double helix, representing the instructions encoded by DNA. The helix is composed of twisting sugar-phosphate backbones linked by complementary pairs of nucleotide bases. The sequence of base pairs, arranged in discrete segments known as genes, determines the genetic code. This is the information which controls and transmits an organism's hereditary traits. The male figure is based on a drawing by the Italian scientist and artist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), which showed how human limb movements can be described on the perimeters of a square and a circle.
