Germany 2007 Scientific Council 50th Anniversary

This stamp was issued on 20 September 2007 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the German Scientific Council. The lower portions of the stamp features various images representing the different branches of science, but I couldn't make out what they are, except for the first 2 from the left. The first looks like a block of DNA sequences, while the second is obviously a block of binary series. A friend actually pointed out this stamp to me, asking me if there is any "scientific" error in the first image - more specifically the second row of DNA sequence: "TGACDATC". Can you guess what the error is?
