- All living things have genetic information stored in large molecules called DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid).
- DNA is stored in the nuclei of cells, where it is packaged into thread-like structures called chromosomes.
- The order of the subunits that make up DNA molecules encodes the genetic information of an organism.
Cells contain chromosomes, which carry genetic information in the form of DNA.
