Zoom in on your genome

This animation shows where and how the human genome is stored within our cells.

Zoom in on your genome allows you to take a journey into the body to see where the genome is found and how DNA is packaged in the nucleus of the cell. Your journey will start outside the body and take you into the liver and a liver cell. You will then travel to the nucleus and unwind the chromosomes to reveal the DNA itself. Here you will see the various levels of DNA packaging and the four basic building blocks of DNA.
