The 2 strands intertwine, forming a double-helix that winds around a central axis
1- DNA stores genetic information in segments called genes
2- The DNA code is in Triplet Codons (short sequences of 3 nucleotides each)
3- Certain codons are translated by the cell into certain Amino
4. Thus, the sequence of nucleotides in DNA indicate a sequence of Amino acids in a protein.
