    For many materials, if you can make a membrane thin enough, it can transmit light.

    Every single atom in the universe transmits light signals. So it goes without saying that all matter transmits light.

    I think DNA in plants transits light via photosynthesis,
    We humans though made of atoms , cells, which contain our genetic imprint does not use light.
    What about those people who live in countries where there is six months of darkness and light.
    There genetic make up is essentially the same. It's codes do not differ.
    Unless there are genetic illnesses that occur in them which does not occur in people that live in the US
    I'd look up rare genetic mutations in say Greenland.

    It may not contain light in the form of light we see but it contains the main element of light which is called "Photon" according to quantum Physics.
