Here is Dr Michael Snyder speaking at Stanford on the subject.
at 2:15 they use Arnold Schwarzenegger as an example 50-100 trillion
cells and again 7:46 to show what can go wrong.
DNA is housed in our 46 chromosomes and it determines or programs 200 basic
kind of cells (examples fat,nerve,liver,cancer)the DNA is made from
4 types of distinct chemical energies called nucleotides (A,T,C and G) they
string along forming a "sequence" that pairs forming a two stranded structure
with a slight pitch called a helix.
Human genome contains about 3 billion nucleotides and 20-25K genes.
