DNA sequences. Computer artwork of an autoradiogram of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) sequences. A close up view of a sequence (also known as the DNA fingerprint) is superimposed in the foreground. The sequences are formed of four columns of irregularly spaced bands. A DNA sample can be taken from body fluids such as blood, and body tissues. The DNA is then fragmented with enzymes to form the banding pattern. The bands represent the positioning of the base pairs on the DNA molecule. This banding makes up the genetic code in the form of genes, which is unique to every person.
