DNA and Nucleic Acids
Lecture no. 23 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Professor Davis introduces you to ribose, the central component of both RNA and DNA. Starting from individual molecules and motifs, you’ll progressively work your way up toward a full model for the structure of the sub-units involved in our genetic code. This lecture is proof of organic chemistry’s powerful role in establishing who you are.
