WikipediaEdit

Wikipedia disagrees with your spelling. Alex Peckover 14:04, Jul 22, 2004 (CEST)

You're right, but your revision wasn't correct either. It had Nucleic double. I translated from Dutch: Deoxyribose Nucleide Zuur, but I guess English spelling differs a bit. I'll correct it. -- Redge 14:14, 22 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Okay, thanks. Alex Peckover 14:24, Jul 22, 2004 (CEST)

RemovedEdit

I removed this as it seems to be one fan's opinion rather than anything mentioned in a canon production. -FC 20:45, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Though we often see DNA or genome modifications being the cause of shapeshifting (TNG: "Genesis") and numerous other episodes, no such condition can exist. For example, if one were to receive a kidney transplant from a female, one would not immediately start to become female as a result of the foreign DNA. The Founders are never mentioned to alter their DNA as they shapeshift and routinely assume the form of inanimate objects which do not have DNA.

Background DNA Edit

The Background section says that TOS never mentioned DNA. There is a reference here, although it was never used for identification purposes to my knowledge. Roygbiv666 16:31, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
