Biological molecules (AQA AS Biology) PART 5 of 8 TOPICS: Nucleic
acids
Nucleic acids:
Two types of nucleic acids needs to be known for this module and they are DNA (deoxyribose nucleic
acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). These are important information carrying molecules where DNA
holds genetic information and RNA transfers the genetic information to the ribosomes. The structures
of DNA and RNA should be known:
Joining up these individual nucleic acids involves a condensation reaction to create phosphodiester bonds to create a
sugar phosphate backbone
