DNA - Deoxyribonucleic Acid

contains your genetic information. i.o.w. that's all the instructions needed to grow and develop molecules are really long and coiled up very tightly so a lot of information can fit into a small space in the cell nucleus molecules have a paired structure which makes it much easier to copy itself.
