Music is in my DNA!

In a stress pressure-cooker like America, I believe we will see more and more shooting massacres. Violence is in our cultural DNA.

We cannot cheat on DNA. We cannot get round photosynthesis. We cannot say I am not going to give a damn about phytoplankton. All these tiny mechanisms provide the preconditions of our planetary life. To say we do not care is to say in the most literal sense that we choose death.

To hackers, DNA is just another operating system waiting to be hacked.

On behalf of future archeologists, I would like to ask you to please think twice before you go home and brush your teeth.

Your genome knows much more about your medical history than you do.

We have discovered that dinosaur DNA, and all DNA, just breaks down too fast.

We're just not going to be able to do what they did in 'Jurassic Park.'

DNA ties us all together; we share ancestry with barracuda and bacteria and mushrooms, if you go far enough back.

Every piece of DNA we look at has greater diversity within Africa than outside of Africa.

There are many ways of casting molecular spells using DNA.

What we really want to do in the end is learn how to program self-assembly so that we can build anything.

Our DNA is as a consumer company - for that individual customer who's voting thumbs up or thumbs down. That's who we think about. And we think that our job is to take responsibility for the complete user experience. And if it's not up to par, it's our fault, plain and simply.

I do not want to die being known for doing baby mama DNA tests on my show.

We try to make earth-friendly decisions whenever we can, as it's part of our brand DNA.

There's a real sense of fighting and destruction in our DNA that we don't get in touch with.

The information encoded in your DNA determines your unique biological characteristics, such as sex, eye color, age and Social Security number.

In the transmission of human culture, people always attempt to replicate, to pass on to the next generation the skills and values of the parents, but the attempt always fails because cultural transmission is geared to learning, not DNA.

If you can write DNA, you're no longer limited to 'what is' but to what you could make.

The capacity to blunder slightly is the real marvel of DNA.

Without this special attribute, we would still be anaerobic bacteria and there would be no music.

I just had that conversation this morning with my doctor.

I just got back from the hospital a half-hour ago, and nothing will make me happier than to replicate the DNA of my amazing husband. I'm optimistic.

Similarly, another famous little quantum fluctuation that programs you is the exact configuration of your DNA.

Understanding how DNA transmits all it knows about cancer, physics, dreaming and love will keep man searching for some time.

What the public needs to understand is that these new technologies, especially in recombinant DNA technology, allow scientists to bypass biological boundaries altogether.

He told me that Francis Crick and Jim Watson had solved the structure of DNA, so we decided to go across to Cambridge to see it. This was in April of 1953.

So that's when I saw the DNA model for the first time, in the Cavendish, and that's when I saw that this was it. And in a flash you just knew that this was very fundamental.

During this period, I became interested in how the new techniques of cloning and sequencing DNA could influence the study of genetics and I was an early and active proponent of the Human Genome Sequencing Project.

The Constitution itself, the DNA of the country, can be altered by the collective will of the people, making America a self-evolving and self-writing program.

Make this part of your brand DNA... Tell your story In a way people will care.

I was raised by strong women, and that DNA is in my daughter and wife.

Trying to read our DNA is like trying to understand software code - with only 90% of the code riddled with errors. It's very difficult in that case to understand and predict what that software code is going to do.

With DNA, you have to be able to tell which genes are turned on or off.

Current DNA sequencing cannot do that. The next generation of DNA sequencing needs to be able to do this. If somebody invents this, then we can start to very precisely identify cures for diseases.

My father always says that heroism is in the Pashtun DNA.

Part of what it is to be scientifically-literate, it's not simply, 'Do you know what DNA is? Or what the Big Bang is?' That's an aspect of science literacy. The biggest part of it is do you know how to think about information that's presented in front of you.

We didn't go to the moon to explore or because it was in our DNA or because we're Americans. We went because we were at war and we felt a threat.

Let's say intelligence is your ability to compose poetry, symphonies, do art, math and science. Chimps can't do any of that, yet we share 99 percent DNA. Everything that we are, that distinguishes us from chimps, emerges from that one-percent difference.

With genetic engineering, we will be able to increase the complexity of our DNA, and improve the human race. But it will be a slow process, because one will have to wait about 18 years to see the effect of changes to the genetic code.

This is Steve's company. This is still Steve's company. It was born that way; it's still that way. And so his spirit, I think, will always be the DNA of this company.

Music's always been at the heart of Apple.

It's deep in our DNA. We've sold Macs to musicians since the beginning of Macs.

Don't do things because I do them or Steve Jobs or Mark Cuban tried it. You need to know your personal brand and stay true to it.

Passion has been in my DNA for generations.

I met with my lawyers. They gave me all the wrong advice. For a long time I refused to accept the child was mine. I should have met her, arranged a DNA test and accepted my responsibility.
