Structural Biochemistry Dr. Lukas Buehler TA Phu Tran pdtran@ucsd.edu Sections A03 W 1 - 3 pm Solis 111 OH after class by appointment Handout 1 Polymers Function Structure Information is _ Analysis _. This is how we deduce and learn new things in biology. Information Structure Function is _ Design _. This is how we teach biology and how we do bioengineering. Function can be studied independently of structure. An example field of study that apply mostly to function without needing to know the structures of molecules is _ Genetics _. Name the polymer type and monomers that would make up the polymer: Polymer: Nucleic acids (DNA/RNA) Polymer: Lipids, Phospholipids, Triglycerides (Fat) Monomers: Nucleotides Monomers: Fatty Acids Polymer: Polysaccharides (sugars) Polymer: Proteins Monomers: Monosaccharides Monomers: Amino acids

Water Water is polar because the Oxygen atom is more _ electronegative _ than the Hydrogen atoms, thus drawing more electron density toward the Oxygen atom. This creates a _ dipole _ _ moment _ and asymmetric electron distribution, so even though there is a net charge of 0 on the H 2 O molecule, water is a polar solvent and there are _
