The DNA that holds the design for a human is like a very clever, one-billion word book:
There are 23 chapters, called chromosomes.
Each chapter contains several thousand stories, called genes [the protien recipes].
Each story is made of paragraphs, called exons, which are interrupted by advertisements called introns.
Each paragraph is made of words, called codons.
Each word is written in letters called bases.
From "Genome" by Matt Ridley, a great book that tells stories of the human genome, one chapter for each chromosome. While doing so, he describes self-interest, history, memory, fate, gender wars, and other aspects of humanity in a way that is brilliantly accessible and often delightfully humorous.
