DNA - an Instruction manual.

At the heart of each cell in your body is an instruction manual written in four letters: A, C, G, and T.  This instruction manual is vital to each cell doing its job properly.  Every cell in your body is engaged in a fantastic example of teamwork - if a cell steps outside the team, it potentially becomes a menace and is on the road to cancer.  However, the world is a rough place to live and our DNA code is constantly being damaged.

What happens when this code is damaged?   It must be repaired as otherwise it might lead to the death of the cell or to cancer.  We will help you understand how cells repair damage to their DNA instruction manual.
