This table displays data about DNA Strands


  • Nucleic acid sequence


    Nucleic acids consist of a chain of linked unites called necleotides. Each nucleotide consists of three subunits: a phosphate group and a sugar (ribose in hte case of RNA, deoxyribose in DNA) make up the backbone of the nucleic acid strand, and attached to the sugar is one of a set of nucleobases. Nucleotide handout for review.

    Biological significance

    In biological systems, nucleic acids (Wikipedia Page about Nucleic Acids) contain inofmration which is used by a living cell to construct specific proteins.  The sequence of nucleobases on a nucleic acid strand is translated by cell machinery into a sequence of amino acids making up a protein strand.

    The different nucleobases that make up DNA are 

    • Adenine
    • Cytosine
    • Guanine
    • Thymine

    My Class Notes

    Make sure the links have titles

    Dont say click here and dont put the URL as the link

    Make the image descriptions detailed enought. Page about cats with lots of cat pictures. What is the difference between the cats. Dont use the same text for every image. Don't add unnecessary images if it doesn't go with the content.

    Use the H1, H2, and Title styles. Don't just use font sizes. Use the F for our template and the T for Blackboard general ones.

    Put captions unde the pictures 

    Alternate text needs to be 125-130 characters or less.  Best Practices.
