Found it was odd there was no actual guide here but I found it in the walkthrough.

So I'm just copy-pasting it here as I know not everyone checks walkthroughs.

ALL THE CREDIT goes to: TP x NeOnZz, drabik, and Tasty Pastry

DNA is found on every level of the game except the boss levels. There are 10 non-boss levels and there are 5 DNA pieces per level. DNA is usually easy to spot and they are scattered throughout the level. You can easily spot the DNA if you see lines of colors (DNA is Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red). The DNA appears in the same order throughout the level as it does in the menu (Apart from level 2)

Level 1:
Purple: Right out in the open at the start after a load of traps. You should not miss it.
Blue: You see a switch on the floor with '30' on it, go past that and a little way into the bridge you will see the shiny orbs stacked up. Go into a totem (RT)+(A) and at the top of the tower is the DNA. You need to have reached level 2 to totem
Green: The next bridge you come across right in front of you. This can't really be missed. You will need to totem to get it.
Yellow: Straight after the green DNA is another bridge. The Yellow DNA is in the middle of it. You shouldn't miss it.
Red: After that bridge you will come to an area with a few explosives. The red DNA is in the middle of them.

Level 2:
Purple: Appears at the very start of the level. You won't miss it. You need to totem to get the DNA.
Blue: You will get to an area with a '50' switch on the floor. Just in front of this switch, to the left a little, there is a place where you need to totem, the DNA is at the top of there.
Yellow: You will come to a point where there are fireballs shooting out of the ground. The yellow DNA is above the second panel. You need to totem to get it.
Green: After the yellow DNA you will come to a point where you need to jump over a few stepping stones. You will see the green DNA at the edge of the first stepping stone. Just jump down and get it. You can die after getting a DNA piece and it won't reset it.
Red: In an area with gas during the level. Just clear the gas away and run down to the DNA.

Level 3:
Purple: You will come to a '30' switch on the floor. There will be a jump. Instead of jumping, drop down. The DNA is down there.
Blue: After you go up a set of fans, the DNA is right next to the top one. It can't really be missed. You will need to totem.
Green: You will see another '30' switch on the floor and a drop next to it. Go down the small drop and go back in on yourself. The DNA is down here.
Yellow: Straight after the green DNA, jump on to the first stepping stone and you will see the yellow DNA piece right in front of you. Simply drop down on to it.
Red: You will get to an area with loads of crates that get blown up. After they do, the red DNA is in the middle of the area. You will need to totem.

Level 4:
Purple: At the start of the level you will come across a small walkway with lava on each side. To get past, you need to totem. Halfway through this area is the DNA.
Blue: After doing a little obstacle course, you come across a little walkway with 2 fire bars spinning around. The blue DNA is just above them.
Green: Just after where the blue DNA was you will come to a hill with fire balls rolling down it. In the middle of the hill there is a ramp with a place where you need to totem to get the shiny orbs. The DNA is at the top of these orbs.
Yellow: Immediately after that there is a jump with lava below. The DNA piece is in the middle of the jump.
Red: The red DNA piece is after 2 sets of stepping stones you get on a small platform with an exploding bug to get to the ledge off the platform you need to totem the DNA piece is just above the ledge, you will see it while doing the totem

Level 5:
Purple: At the very start of the level, move forward a little and you will see the DNA over the edge. Just jump down and collect it.
Blue: You will see this DNA in the immediate foreground while playing the level. Just after you get the first two lights.
Green: This one will also be seen easily in the background.
Yellow: Directly in front of you while playing the level. Shouldn't be missed.
Red: Also directly in front of you while playing the level. Shouldn't be missed.

Level 6:
Boss level. No DNA.

Level 7:
Purple: Right in front of you during a 'gap' jump.
Blue: Straight after you get the purple DNA, there will be a double fan. Run past it and there will be a single fan. Wait for it to start and jump on it. The DNA piece is above.
Green: You will see a sign that says '40' on the floor but just before it a fan shooting away from it, you will need to totem and jump so the fan pushes you and gets enough height to get the DNA
Yellow: When you come across some very small stepping stones, make your way all around instead of jumping off. At the end is the DNA.
Red: On the part of the level where you need to take cover from electricity, there will be a big platform to hide under. Wait for the storm to stop and go on top of the platform. The DNA piece is up there.

Level 8:
Purple: This will be right in front of you near the start of the level, and should not be missed.
Blue: At the end of that first part there is a ramp near a jump. Boost (RT) over the ramp and you should hit the DNA.
Green: While this shouldn't be missed, it is very hard to get. There are a lot of electrical wires in the way, so you have to be quick in the totem, if you miss, just get all your swarmites killed and try again.
Yellow: When you come to a hill with balls rolling down, get to the top and get the checkpoint. Now turn around and totem the orbs at the top of the hill. The DNA is up there (The reason you want the checkpoint is because if you don't have enough swarmites you can always kill the ones you have and spawn next to the DNA with the full 50)
Red: You shouldn't miss this DNA, as it is right in front of you. Just play the level and you will see it.

Level 9:
Purple: Near the start of the level, just after you go down the stairs. This DNA won't be missed.
Blue: Just after the red DNA there is an electric wave machine. The blue DNA is inside this area.
Green: Straight after you get the blue DNA there is a jump. The green DNA is here.
Yellow: When you see a group of 5 swords swinging, get past them and there should be a few fans. Go into a totem andyou will see the DNA piece right next to the final sword.
Red: This won't be missed. Just play through the level, and you will see it after going on a giant stepping stone.

Level 10:
Purple: At the start of the level. This can be seen clearly after a few seconds.
Blue: This also will not be missed. Just play through the level.
Green: As soon as you get the blue DNA, there is something you need to break... DON'T! Instead, go past it to find a hidden path. You will see the green DNA quite easily.
Yellow: To get this you will need to turn around and break that thing to go to the top floor, it will be right in front of you once you reach the top.
Red: The red DNA is on the same path as the green one. At the end of the path, break the panel and go up the fan.

Level 11:
Purple: At the very start of level there are some orbs that you need to totem to get. The DNA is on the top of them.
Blue: Just after the purple orb, you need to totem up a wall.
Green: During the part where arrows are raining down. Should not be missed.
Yellow: Just after wherethe green DNA is. Difficult to miss.
Red: Just after the part with the cannons. Should not be missed.

Level 12:
Boss level. No DNA.
