DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid.
DNA is found in all living things.
DNA was first isolated in 1869 by Friedrich Miescher.
DNA was first isolated by Friedrich Miescher.
James Watson and Francis Crick figured out the structure of DNA.
DNA is a double helix.
It is made up of phosphate group, sugar, and nitrogen base
Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine and Guanine
Is equal to the amount of Thymine and Guanine added together. A+C = T+G
Hydrogen bonds hold the bases together
The hydrogen bonds between the nitrogenous base pairs of DNA are strong dipole-dipole attractions. They hold the two strands of DNA together.
Nuclotides are the building blocks of DNA.A nuclotide can be defined as an organic molecule that serves as the monomer or subunit of nucleic acids in DNA
They are composed of a nitrogenous base, a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose), and at least one phosphate group.
This complex is known as a nucloside
