A 360 degree view of your genome

Explore your genome in 3D with this 360 degree video designed for Google Cardboard.

Our human genome is made up of billions of DNA units, known as nucleotides.

The order or sequence of these units -- usually represented by the letters A, T, C and G -- contains information that guides how our body grows and develops. 

Your cells uses sections of DNA called genes as templates to make proteins and other molecules they need to function. Understanding the information encoded in our DNA can offer clues about our ancestry, health and risk of disease.
