✤ DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid ✤ DNA carries all the genetic information of living organisms.
DNA ✤ DNA has a very specific shape called a double helix ✤ The shape was discovered by three scientists. ✤ James Watson, Francis Crick, and Rosalind Franklin
DNA ✤ DNA has section that are codes for making proteins. ✤ These specific codes are called genes.
What makes up DNA? ✤ DNA is composed of 3 major parts: Nitrogen Base, Sugar and a phosphate.
Parts of DNA ✤ DNA has four different Nitrogen Bases ✤ These are Adenine, Guanine, Thymine, and Cytosine
Nitrogen Bases ✤ Each Nitrogen Base pairs with another base. ✤ The nitrogen bases of Adenine are always paired with Thymine. ✤ The nitrogen bases of Cytosine are always paired with Guanine.
PRACTICE ✤ If DNA has the following sequence on one helix, what would be the other side: ✤ ATTAGCACGGCAT ✤ TAATCGTGCCGTA ✤ GCGATTAGCTAAT ✤ CGCTAATCGATTA
INTRODUCTION TO DNA By the end of this lecture you will know:
Nucleic Acid Structure and Function. Function of DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid) Contains sections called “genes” that code for proteins. These genes are.
DNA Structure and Function
Warm-Up Where is DNA found? What is DNA?
The Structure of DNA DNA Has the Structure of a Winding Staircase
DNA: The Molecule of Heredity
DNA Deoxyribonucleic Acid. The DNA Connection What have you learned about inheritance, DNA, and cell division up to this point? How do genes determine.
DNA “Deoxyribonucleic acid”
Chapter 11 DNA and Genes Section 1 DNA: the Molecule of Heredity.
DNA Structure Review. Questions 1.Name the term used to describe the shape of the DNA molecule. 2.What does DNA stand for? 3.What 3 chemicals make up.
Warm Up Where is DNA located within a cell? Why is DNA important?
Tuesday 12/2/2014 Q2 WK6 D1 Agenda: DNA Notes: DNA Activity: DNA Reading and Coloring Homework : DNA Reading (Annotations) and Coloring Due Wednesday/Thursday.
CHAPTER 11 relating the structure of DNA to its function the role of DNA in protein production distinguish amongst different types of mutations.
DNA "The Blueprint of Life". DNA stands for... DeoxyriboNucleic Acid.
DNA: the blueprint of life. Where do you get your DNA? DNA is passed from parent to offspring. Where do we find DNA? DNA is in the nucleus of every cell.
DNA What does DNA mean? Where do I find DNA? Why is it important? How do I use DNA?
