10 Genes: Our Codes for Life Segments within DNA consist of  genes  that make  proteins to determine our development.

11 Genome Genome  is the set of complete instructions for  making an organism, containing all the genes in that  organism. Thus, the human genome makes us  human, and the genome for  drosophila  makes it a  common house fly.

14 Separated Twins A number of studies compared identical twins raised  separately from birth, or close thereafter, and found  numerous similarities. Separated Twins Personality, Intelligence Abilities, Attitudes Interests, Fears Brain Waves, Heart Rate

Separated Twins Critics of separated twin studies note that such  similarities can be found between strangers.  Researchers point out that differences between  fraternal twins are greater than identical twins. Bob Sacha
