DNA  


      n   deoxyribonucleic acid; a nucleic acid that is the main constituent of the chromosomes of all organisms (except some viruses).

DNA is self-replicating, plays a central role in protein synthesis, and is responsible for the transmission of hereditary characteristics from parents to offspring
