What is it?
DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes
Where is DNA?
DNA is in your cells nucleus.
What is DNA made of?
DNA is a very large molecule, made up of smaller units called nucleotides that are strung together in a row.
What is its structure?
DNA is double-stranded. The molecule has the shape of a double helix
What does DNA do?
What does it do?
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that carries the genetic information needed to construct cells. It is also capable of self-replication and synthesizing ribonucleic acid (RNA).
Heredity is the passing of traits from parents to offspring influenced by DNA.
Replication is when it copies something inside DNA.
In translation mRNA along with transfer RNA (tRNA) and ribosomes work together to produce proteins. Its job is to translate the message within the nucleotide sequence of mRNA to a specific amino acid sequence.
What is RNA?
RNA is Ribonucleic acid a polymeric molecule. It's implicated in a varied sort of biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes.
Types of RNA
1. mRNA or Messenger RNA
2. rRNA or Ribosomal RNA
3. tRNA or Transfer RNA
What does RNA do?
RNA fits through the pores of the nuclear membrane, unlike DNA, allowing it to transport all of the information to the specific parts.RNA copies parts of DNA.
