Image:DNA unravelling

Description: Illustration of the DNA double helix unzipping into its two complementary strands. DNA is formed of two sugar-phosphate strands (grey) linked by pairs of bases: adenine (green) binds with thymine (red), and guanine (yellow) binds with cytosine (blue). The sequence of bases along the strands forms a template for the production of proteins.
