Well DNA can't really be in a simple explanation. It is a deoxyribonucleic acid that strands our genetic material together into a double-stranded genome. Not that simple really. All the theories and definitions complicate it way past what it should be. DNA is made up of genes which are made up of chromosomes and nucleotides. Every person with no mutation have 46 total or 23 pairs of chromosomes, 23 from their birth mother and 23 from their birth father. If there is more than 46 total it is classified as a mutation, although nothing maybe wrong with t individual person, and there could always be a physical defect from that. Nucleotides are what the double-stranded helix of DNA is made from. Pairs of molecules; the only four of which are involved are: Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G), and Cytosine (C). They pair up as A to T and C to G. Unless it is RNA, those will always pair as that. In RNA the Adenine isn't there, is 'traded' for Uracil (U). So yeah - not all that simple. :)
