Lecture 06: MACROMOLECULES II: Information Summary. This lecture focuses on the structure of two informational macromolecules: Proteins and Nucleic Acids. In many ways the era of modern biology began when research focused on the structure of these important macromolecules used for storage of genetic information, and generation of extremely diverse structural and functional proteins. Reading Assignment Campbell, N. A. and Reece, J. B. (2008) Biology. Chapter 5 (pp. 77-91); Chapter 16 (pp. 308-310) Watson, J. D. and Crick, F. H. C. (1952) A molecular structure of nucleic acids. Nature 4356 (pp. 737-8). See link on website. Objectives 1) To understand the primary structure of a protein as a polymer of amino acids. Develop a clear understanding of the types of covalent bonds within the protein, and the special nature of the peptide bond. 2) Review and understand each of the 20 biologically active amino acids and how they differ in terms of hydrophobic, hydrophilic, charged and uncharged properties and the special properties of cysteine. 3)
