DNA molecule. Computer artwork of a molecule of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA is composed of two strands twisted into a double helix. Each strand consists of a sugar-phosphate backbone (white and orange) with nucleotide bases attached. There are four different bases (red, yellow, green and blue): guanine, cytosine, thymine and adenine. Guanine always pairs with cytosine and adenine always pairs with thymine. DNA contains sections, called genes, which encode the body's genetic information. Genes determine each cell's structure, function and behaviour.
