Caption: DNA damage. Computer artwork of damage to a molecule of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) by ionising radiation. The ionising radiation (energetic particles or waves, yellow) is breaking the bonds in the DNA. This is damaging to an organism because DNA contains sections, called genes, which encode the body's genetic information and determine each cell's structure, function and behaviour. Extensive doses of ionising radiation are dangerous as incorrect repair of the DNA by the body may lead to cancers and other abnormalities in the individual.
