    being short like that 2.3 cm can NOT replicate, produce ofspring... don't make such a mistakes, trufull. dna in different species has diferten size. in human , around 1 meter as contour lenth.
    again, never be an necesity to consider such a length, as gene, dna will always around till humans extinct, this truthfull, it something God gives human for free :wink: :biggrin:

    There is estimated to be at least one meter of DNA in a human cell. This will vary between other organisms, however- the simpler the animal, often the shorter the DNA.
