Genetic material is the material used to store genetic information for a living organism. For all currently known living organisms, with the exception of prions, the genetic material is almost exclusively DNA. This is supplemented with cytoplasmic inheritance factors, often proteins. For some forms of artificial life, the genetic material is computer memory or other digital data storage media.
