Nucleic Acids (DNA and RNA)
DNA Job and Name
Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid that containds the genitic information for replication, function and growth.
DNA Structure (Spiral Ladder)
Part of the nucleotide consisting of guanine, cytosine, adenine, and thynine.
Describe Hydrogen Bonds
Weak bonds made of the component hydrogen, linking two monomers together or nitrogen bases.
Why Are Hydrogen Bonds Weak
So they can seperate and go through the proccess of replication and synthesis

What is a Nucleotide
A nucleotide is a DNA's monomer
What are Monomers
A molecule that can be bonded to other identical molecules to form a polymer.
What is a Polymer
A compound made up of several repeating units (monomers)
What is Deoxyribose
What Nitrogen Bases Pair with Which
Adenine and Thynine
Guanine and Cytosine
What is the Role of a Chromosome
Threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information.
