(Neon Genesis Evangelion)
In episode 15, there is a key scene in which we see Rei inside an overgrown test-tube, which is surrounded by two sets of letters on the wall. What are these letters?
The letters are the short hand form for the nucleotides which make up DNA. The two strings represent the double-helix structure of DNA itself.
The letters are as follows:
C - cytosine
The nucleotides are unique in that only cytosine can pair up with guanine, and only adenine can pair up with thymine.
