We went to the DNA lab to talk to a scientist and learn about DNA.We were also trying to find out how DNA relates to diseases. Disease connects to DNA because some diseases are hereditary. The DNA cells in your body can tell you which diseases you are more susceptible to. While we were there, we asked a scientist lots of questions. We also looked at a DNA exhibit to learn more.

Three questions I asked were:

Are all the cells in our bodies important?

We can survive without some cells like fingernail cells and surplus skin cells.

  • Is there anything in the body that DNA doesn’t control?

DNA coats all of our body parts but it doesn’t actually control our body parts.

  • Why are people so interested in DNA?

Because it is vital to life.
