Discovering DeoxyriboNucleic Acid

It is a well-known fact that we inherit phisycal traits from our parents .If a child is left-handed its very likely that one ohf her or his parents write with his or her hand .If a boy's father is bald he will have a greater chance of going bald when he gets older .W hile everyone knew that phisycal traits were inherited it wasn't untill the twentieth century that scientists discovered the biological key to this process : DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid .Finding DNA took almost100 years.
Now scientists are working decoding the DNA molecule .To do this ,they must read each of the over 3 billion DNA letters in the human body .This decoding of human DNA , also known as the human genome project will result in a map of the DNA in the human body .
