Computer artwork of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) nucleotides, or bases. DNA is composed of four nucleotides: adenine (bottom), cytosine (top), guanine (left) and thymine (right). These make up the genetic code of every living organism. Long rows of nucleotides join by base pairing and coil into a double-helix shape. Adenine only pairs with thymine, and guanine only pairs with cytosine.
