All of life as we know it is based off of DNA. Everything from the smallest and simplest organisms to the biggest and most complex creatures ever to live all begin with guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine. To better understand the universal nature of DNA and to show how four things can create an almost infinite combination of traits, we are going to work with something most (if not all) of you are familiar with: the Rubik’s Cube.
