Genetic inheritance. Conceptual artwork representing the role of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) in inheritance, showing a man beneath a tree whose roots are strands of DNA. DNA is the molecule that controls the growth and development of all living things. It contains sections called genes that act as a recipe for proteins. Genes are passed from parents to their children, and are the agents of heredity.
