7 days

Buy NowFrom The Biology of Prenatal Development.

Script: Each human cell contains approximately 3 billion base pairs.

The DNA of a single cell contains so much information that if it were represented in printed words, simply listing the first letter of each base would require over 1.5 million pages of text!

If laid end-to-end, the DNA in a single human cell measures 3 1/3 feet or 1 meter.

All ages referenced to fertilization, not last menstrual period.
