For disease class, we went to the DNA lab in the field museum located in the South Loop of Chicago. The reason why we went to this exhibit is because we wanted to find out how DNA can effect disease. We had a Q&A with a scientist that studies DNA of sharks. I asked 3 question and I got 3 answers back, they were:

Can DNA die?

They can die if they are not kept in a cold temperature.

Is there something  in the body that DNA can’t control?

DNA can not control a heart beat.

Can DNA change in the body?

Yes it can, it can change by mutation.
