What is DNA Anyways?

DNA is a very large biological molecule that stores all the information required to make a functioning organism. This information is arranged in small sequences called genes. Genes encode for proteins and RNA, two other biological molecules that allow the cellular processes of life to happen. The process of using DNA to make protein and RNA is called gene expression.

I have been working with CW Analytical to develop a genetic fingerprinting protocol that will enable us to see similarities and differences between popular strains of Cannabis. After months of refinement at the bench, CW Analytical has successfully launched the Cannabis DNA Initiative!
