DNA x DNA is the Major Component of Our Chromosomes. x The Strands are Generally Twisted Into a “ Double Helix ” Configuration. x DNA = Double Helix x Two Complimentary Strands of DNA Form The Double Helix Configuration . Nucleotides x DNA is Made of Individual Units, Called Nucleotides. x A Nucleotide Consists of 3 Parts : 1 : Sugar . . . . . . 2 : Phosphate . . 3 : Base . . . . . . . DNA BASES 1 : 2 : 3 : 4 : A always bonds with T C always bonds with G A = Adenine C = Cytosine G = Guanine T = Thymine Nucleotide Matching What would be the Matching DNA Code ?
