DNA nucleotides represented as wooden tiles

Changes in the DNA are reflected in the protein product. There is a correlation between what happens to the genetic sequence and the resulting protein sequence. So, there must be some sense to the way the DNA nucleotides are arranged. DNA is made up of four different nucleotides: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T).
