Unformatted text preview: 2. T = A; C = G 3. T + A does not necessarily = C + G and changes from organism to organism. 4. c. Structure (Watson and Crick, 1953) 1. Experimental approach by X-ray crystallography (Franklin and Wilkins) 2. Model building (Watson and Crick) d. Relationship between structure and function. III. Chemical composition of RNA a. Sugar = ribose b. Thymine replaced by uracil IV. Denaturation/Renaturation of DNA a. melting temperature is directly proportional to base composition. b. kinetics of renaturation is related to concentration: single vs. multi-copy genes. Reading in 8 th edition Chapter 3, 80-90; in 9 th edition Chapter 2, 33-36 V. Higher order structure of DNA a. Nucleosomes b. Nuclear architecture c. Euchromatin and heterochromatin d.
