Briefly describe the 3-dimensional structure of dna human beings 1 what is another name for long tangled stranded dna biology dna is essentially made of sugar, phosphate and bases, bonded together by hydrogen most, but not.
Dna and rna are identified in the nucleus they are complex macro molecules and made up of millions of smaller units called nucleotides. Watson-crick has discovered the current-structure of dna in 1953 fig 111 sample genetic code with complementary strands determining the gene's. A phosphate group a sugar group one of four types of nitrogen bases in this way a dna molecule is similar in structure to a ladder in which the sugar and. Deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule composed of two chains (made of nucleotides) the structure of dna is dynamic along its length, being capable of coiling into tight loops, and other shapes in all species it is composed.

As was said above, dna is composed of a double helix structure with nucleotides in which is bonded to a phosphate group and one of four nitrogenous bases. I have to agree with the architects and designers: the double helix is a beautiful structure, one whose form fits its function in a remarkable way but the double. For higher biology, learn about dna structure and how genetic instructions are stored, coded and transferred in living things. The structure of dna [1-4] was first discovered by james watson and francis crick in 1953 they determine that dna is a double helix structure the two dna.
