This always gets sticky when describing DNA as a molecule, and especially when there are sections of DNA that do not code for proteins but instead act as regulators for cell functions.
A chromosome is a molecule of DNA made of ATCG and folded up somewhat like a rope coiled into a bucket. Transcribing the DNA requires regulatory inputs as well as specialized enzymes to uncoil the chromosome, transcribe the required "gene", then re-coil the chromosome and put it back in storage. Yes, I know this is simplified. Yes, I know there are exceptions, yes I know RNA is kind of like the runner who goes around and does what the DNA tells it to do.
