macromolecule wiht chains of nucleotides that are involved in the preservation, replication and expression of DNA.
the basic building block of nucleic acids. they are an organic compund made up of a phosphate group, sugar and nitrogen base.
any compoud containing carbon atoms.
any change not involving a change in the substance's chemical identitiy.
