DNA is how a species stores genetic information. Somehow the body needs to know what to do with this information. somehow the "machinery" that translates the DNA into proteins needs to be passed along with it.
Could this machinery also be encoded within the DNA? Or does it come automatically from some physical/chemical properties of dna? Or is it already present within the sperm/egg?
I am thinking if the dna somehow contains information on how to build the machinery to interpret it, we might be able to get a whole new understanding of how it works.
