By Grace Ericsson, Biology hour 1

Why are macromolecules so important to learn?

A macromolecule is something made of of small atoms such as synthetic polymers. The 4 main macromolecules are protein, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates. They are so important for life because they are nutrients and provide energy. Macromolecules are essential for all known forms of life

Nucleic Acids

  1. Nucleic acids are essential for all known forms of life. Nucleic acids, which include DNA and RNA are made from monomers known as nucleotides or a complex organic substance present in living cells, especially DNA or RNA, whose molecules consist of many nucleotides linked in a long chain.
