Deoxyribonucleic Acid

DNA is something you can't live without!


DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid): DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid): contains the biological features that makes you unique. It is passed from adult organisms, to their offspring.DNA is located in the nucleus.DNA is made of chemical building blocks called, nucleotides. DNA contains the instructions needed for an offspring to develop, survive, and reproduce.DNA heredity is genes you get from one of your parents or family members, that make you look more like one of them.DNA replication is the process of producing two identical replicas from one original DNA molecule.


1. RNA (ribonucleic acid), is a nucleic acid present in all living cells. It acts like a messenger, carrying instructions from DNA for controlling the synthesis of proteins.2. Types of RNA: mRNA-carries genetic information from the nucleus to the cytoplasm of a cell. rRNA-located in the cytoplasm like ribosomes, and it directs the translation of of mRNA into proteins.
