dc.description.abstractEvery organism is built from a complex set of instructions coded as a sequence of the four different nuoleotides of the DNA molecule. These genetic instructions have evolved for a period of three billion years until today over ten million times more genetic information is required to biosynthesize a human than was required for our first living ancestor. This information is coded in a microscopic skein of DNA five billion nucleotides in length. We will introduce a few highlights of information theory, and indicate how they are applicable to the processing of this genetic information.en_US
