  1. I think that scientists are still trying to discover the "how" of heredity. However, since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "DNA structure heredity" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
