What is gene?
A. A gene is a blueprint of a human.Your genes are the footprint of who you are. Humans are known to have approximately 26,000 genes. Each gene is made up of a special protein material called DNA, which translates genetic information necessary to sustain function and life. DNA is comprised of 4 amino acids/base letters; Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G) and Cytosine( C) in sequential order. We inherit the DNA codes, or sequence, from both our parents, thus, this is why we resemble them.
