Edible DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (deoxyribonucleic acid) is an organic compound whose molecules contain the genetic instructions that coordinate the development and functioning of all living things and some viruses, and which transmit the hereditary characteristics of each living being. Its main function is to store the necessary information for the construction of RNA proteins. DNA segments containing the genetic information are called genes. The remainder of the DNA sequence is of structural importance or is involved in regulating the use of genetic information.
