    Smile genetic material

    Genetic material/DNA/Gene is the material that stores genetic information for a human being or other living organism/things.


    I want to make sure if living organism refers to living things. If yes, should I change organism into organisms?
    Second, do genetic material, DNA, and gene all refer to the same stuff? Thanks.

    Re: genetic material

    Living organisms - it's a count noun - refers to living things. The word gene is also count, genes. I'm not sure if genetic material, DNA, and Genes are synonyms, technically. Sorry.
