DNA is made up of six smaller molecules -- a five carbon sugar called deoxyribose, These pictures show a ball and stick model of two DNA nucleotides.
This figure is a diagram of a short stretch of a DNA molecule which is unwound and flattened for clarity. The boxed area at the lower left encloses one nucleotide.
The structure of DNA double helix and how it was discovered. Chargaff Right panel, image modified from "DNA chemical structure," by Madeleine Price Ball.
DNA is well-suited to perform this biological function because of its molecular structure, and because of the development of a series of high performance.
Watson and Crick determined DNA's structure [pdf, but a highly awesome It isn' t a rendering; it's a direct image of DNA, captured through an.
The Watson-Crick Model of DNA (). Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) is a double-stranded, helical molecule. It consists of two sugar-phosphate backbones on.
