Possible answers to some puzzling genetic questions:

  • How did DNA evolve from the primordial soup?
  • Why are there introns in the middle of most genes?
  • What is the use for satellite DNA (also known as "junk" DNA)?
  • What is the primary function of transposons (jumping genes)?
  • How do genes control the development of complex structures?
