Written In the X’s and Y’s

We have so much DNA in our cells that all that genetic information needs to be organized and packed tightly into the nucleus. Unlike bacteria DNA, which is naked, our DNA wraps around proteins and condenses into chromosomes. Forty-six chromosomes in each of your cells contain all the instructions to make you. It seems crazy to think that who you are can be quantified into a series of A’s, T’s, C’s, and G’s, but that’s the magical language of nucleic acids! So, celebrate the essence of you with this chromosome necklace. Why did we choose X? Because everyone, male or female, has at least one of these. This piece also makes an excellent gift for geneticists, fertility experts, cell biologists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
