DNA molecules are composed of four different nucleotides arranged in a specific sequence. DNA is the building blocks of all living organisms and contains delicate information, yet it is extremely durable and can withstand harsh environments. This allows it to be found in various places, ranging from inside your body in living cells to crime scenes, and even in dinosaur bones that are millions of years old.
