Research pertaining to synthetic DNA creation technology was published on December 9 by the ETH Zurich research team and an Israeli scientist. Every human being has unique DNA made up of molecules (nucleotides). Each nucleotide contains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. The four types of nitrogen bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C). The order of these bases is what determines DNA’s instructions, or genetic code. Human DNA has around three billion bases, and more than 99% of those bases are the same in all people. This is according to the US National Library of Medicine.
