All living things on earth have evolved from a single primordial ancestor which arose about 3.5-4 billion years ago. A consequence of this is that all organisms share a common system for storing and retrieving biological information. A genetic code consisting of deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) or ribonucleic acids (RNA) is utilised. The same four nucleotides of either RNA or DNA are seen and the genetic code also remains constant in almost all organisms. Chromosomes are the way in which DNA is packaged and stored inside the cell. The method of packaging is different in prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
