Genetic Information

Chapter
Part of the The Frontiers Collection book series (FRONTCOLL)

Abstract

Living organisms are able to create and maintain a high level of organization, grow, differentiate, and propagate thanks to genetic information, which is stored and reproduced, and transferred to future generations through the molecules of DNA. Any orderliness of matter in biological systems appears on the basis of energy, as well as information concerning qualitative composition, quantity, and arrangement of system components.
