Methylated Uracil

Thymine is pyrimidine that’s made by methylating uracil. One of the most interesting stories about thymine is its absence in meteorites. This means that the building blocks of DNA didn’t come from space; however, it does appear that uracil was abundant in space rocks. These two observations put together support the theory that our world started out as an RNA world before evolving into the more stable DNA. Own this thymine necklace to better tell the story of ourselves. It also makes a great gift for evolutionary biologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, and biochemists.
