D= deoxyribo N= nucleic A= acid
Objective: explain the molecular structure of DNA using proper terminology.
DNA is a biological polymer that is made up of repeating units (monomers) called nucleotides.
Color then cut out the 4 nu
DNA Replication Notes
DNA untwists & unzips
Each original strand is a template for the formation of a new strand.
Discovering the Structure of RNA POGIL
Objective: Distinguish between the structures of DNA & RNA.
There is a second type of nucleic acid called ribonucleic acid (RNA). Like DNA, RNA is made up nucleotides. These
nucleotides are similar but not identical
