What is DNA?

A-T-G-C… you might think, it's just letters of the alphabet. But this may only seem this way to those who haven’t been to the program.
«What is DNA? » Adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine, as well as gene and genome, these terms from the glossary of modern scientists will become clear to the listeners of the Nature Center, even if they do not have a biological education. They will not only see the chromosomes of man and plant through a microscope, but they can also extract DNA.

Please note that all programs are run in Russian only.
