What does the word gattaca mean? It is the title of a sci-fi movie, but think it might be latin rooted.?



Answers:
Gattaca is a made up word, It is a combination of the letters G, A, T, and C, which are the first letters of the chemicals that combine to form the DNA code. This is appropriate because the movie was about a culture that decided everything about a person's life based on their DNA coding.
actually i dont think it means anything...i watched that movie in my seventh grade science class

its simply just the letters in a strand of dna

g
t
c
a


all to form a pronouncable word
It is the name of a corporation in the movie. If anything , it would mean cat world or something like that but it probably is just made up.
