Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the carrier of genetic information for all living creatures. An organism's genome, made of DNA, encodes the genetic blueprint for building that organism. Through the process of replication, the entire genome is copied and passed on to each new cell made in the body. Replication is also the mechanism of heredity, which is the passing of genetic information from the parents to their children.
