Produced by the Wellcome Trust, this animation helps to illustrate where and how the human genome is stored within our cells and bodies. It takes a journey which starts with the whole human body before looking into a liver cell and then the cell's nucleus. The animation shows the arrangements of chromosomes within the nucleus and how each chromosome is made of a strand of DNA wrapped around histone proteins. The final sequence looks at the double helix and base-pair structure of the DNA molecule.
The animation is suitable for students aged 14 and above.
