Genetic Code[edit | edit source]

Each phylum and each trait has its own genetic code, made up out of three letters. Only the letters A, G, C and T are used. This way, each organism you create has its own unique genetic code of 15 letters. This is visually represented in a double helix, which, from top to bottom, represents each letter in the code. An A turns one bar red, a G is green, a C is blue and a T is yellow.
