How much DNA does a human cell contain? A human cell contains about 6 pg of DNA.

Considering this, which DNA is commonly found in cells?

In human cells, most DNA is found in a compartment within the cell called a nucleus. It is known as nuclear DNA. In addition to nuclear DNA, a small amount of DNA in humans and other complex organisms can also be found in the mitochondria. This DNA is called mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).

Furthermore, how long is all the DNA in one cell?

around 6 feet

How long would all the DNA in a human cell stretch out to be?

This allows the 3 billion base pairs in each cell to fit into a space just 6 microns across. If you stretched the DNA in one cell all the way out, it would be about 2m long and all the DNA in all your cells put together would be about twice the diameter of the Solar System.

Who is the mother of all humans?

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; Third, by experience, which is the bitterest.
