Hammond shows the crew a video that explains how Jurassic Park scientists acquired dinosaur DNA and cloned them. The video features Mr. DNA, a computerized DNA strand that explains what DNA is, illustrates its structure, and provides other details about it. This clip is an excellent introduction to DNA.
