Abstract: One of creators of quantum mechanics P. Jordan in his work on quantum biology claimed that life's missing laws were the rules of chance and probability of the quantum world. Correspondingly the article is devoted to some phenomenological symmetries in probabilities of components in long DNA sequences and to opportunities of their modelling by means of formalisms of quantum informatics. Using binary-oppositional traits of DNA nitrogenous bases, a notion “genetic qubit” is proposed and used for such modelling. Presented results support thoughts of many authors about quantum computing in biological organisms.

Keywords: symmetry, DNA, binary opposition, genetic qubit, quantum informatics.
