Each human arises from one single cell. This cell contains the sort of instruction “written” in the form of combination of four elements — four types of nucleotides – what is called the genetic code. Dividing, cell generates trillions of daughter cells, sharing exactly the same genetic material as the mother cell. Yet, cells specialize into, for example, muscle, brain or liver cells during the development. How is it possible if each of these cell types shares exactly the same genetic material? It is because of our second code of DNA.
