Nucleic acids – DNA and RNA structure

Nucleic acids – DNA and RNA structure

In this video we will study about nucleic acids. Nucleic acids are basically biopolymers, which are made of monomeric units known as nuclotides. We have two important functions for nucleic acids, that is, they hold our genetic information and they perform a variety of other functions that we will discuss later. We have two important …

Proteins and Nucleic Acids

Hey folks, this is going to be our second screencast on the big four molecules, and this time we’re going to talk about proteins and nucleic acids. So when we talked about carbohydrates and lipids, we mostly used carbon hydrogen oxygen and nitrogen, but today we’re going to add phosphorus and sulfur into the mix …
