a nucleic acid made up of nucleotides joined into long strands or chains. Hereditary information stored here.
Macromolecule that contains carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen needed by the body for growth and repair
Hershey & Chase
confirmed that genetic material is DNA though experiments using bacteriophages
discovered transformation of one bacteria into another through experiments on mice and disease-causing bacteria, phosphorus and sulfur
discovered that the nucleic acid DNA stores and transmits genetic information
Subunit of which nucleic acids are composed made up of a 5 carbon sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base
Principle enzyme involved in DNA replication.
discovered the ratio of base pairs in DNA (1950)
made a an X-ray diffraction pattern diffraction pattern showing DNA as a helix for the first time. (1952)
Watson & Crick
Discovered DNA double helix based on Franklin's work.
Repetitive DNA at the end of a eukaryotic chromosome
Bonds in DNA between adenine and thymine / guanine and cytosine
happens in late interphase, copies DNA strands
prokaryotic v. eukaryotic DNA replication
prokaryotic starts at one spot and goes in two directions, eukaryotic starts in many places at once, going in both directions.
