DNA and RNA: Information in Structure
Lecture no. 25 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Advance into the last third of the course, where you cover molecular biology, which deals with the biochemistry of reproduction. Zero in on DNA and how its double-helix structure relates to its function. Then look at the single-stranded RNA molecule, which is a central link in the process, “DNA makes RNA makes protein.” Also consider how viruses flourish with very little DNA or RNA.
