All biology has its basis in chemistry, and DNA is the ultimate biochemical compound. It is the instruction set from which every other biochemical process in the body ultimately derives, be it metabolism, respiration, brain function, etc. And you cannot see it in this representation, but between each of those ACT&G's is a chemical (phosphodiester) bond.
Yup, chemistry at its most eloquent.
