Genetic adaptability

Because genes are recipes for proteins, they formulate threads in the fabric of life.

"In eukaryotic cells, genomic DNA is packaged into chromatin in the nucleus. Chromatin is able to undergo dynamic changes during replication, recombination, transcription and DNA repair, but also to control temporal gene expression." 

Stefanie Seitz, 2004.

Genes are meaningful stretch of chromosomes that are the raw materials for RNA and ribosomes to assemble proteins.

These genes are not what they appeared to be at first.
