DNA Job and Name

Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid that containds the genitic information for replication, function and growth.

2

DNA Structure (Spiral Ladder)

Double Helix

3

Nitrogen Bases

Part of the nucleotide consisting of guanine, cytosine, adenine, and thynine.

4

Describe Hydrogen Bonds

Weak bonds made of the component hydrogen, linking two monomers together or nitrogen bases.

5

Why Are Hydrogen Bonds Weak

So they can seperate and go through the proccess of replication and synthesis
