Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid)
is the long molecule that codes for the information required to produce a living organism. Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA exists in the form of a linear polymer of Structural components, or building blocks, of DNA and RNA. Nucleotides consists of a base plus a molecule of sugar and one of phosphate.nucleotides ( A purine base found in DNA and RNA, which pairs with thymine in DNA or with uracil in RNA.adenine, A purine base found in DNA and RNA, which pairs with cytosine in both DNA and RNA.guanine, A pyrimidine base found in DNA, which pairs with the complementary base adenine.thymine, or A pyrimidine base found in DNA and RNA, which pairs with guanine in both DNA and RNA.cytosine bound to a phosphorylated sugar - deoxyribose). Under normal circumstances, two strands of Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA are twisted together into the double helix. In eukaryotes (organisms whose cells contain a nucleus) Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA is packaged into Threadlike "packages" of genes and other DNA in the nucleus of a cell. Different kinds of organisms have different numbers of chromosomes. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, 46 in all: 44 autosomes and two sex chromosomes. Each parent contributes one chromosome to each pair, so children get half of their chromosomes from their mothers and half from their fathers.chromosomes.
Genetic material found in mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell.mtDNA ( Of or referring to the mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell.Mitochondrial Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA)
A small piece of Deoxyribonucleic acid: the chemical inside the nucleus of a cell that carries the genetic instructions for making living organisms.DNA that codes for a small number of Organic compounds made of amino acids arranged in a linear chain, joined together by peptide bonds between the carboxyl and amino groups of the adjacent amino acid residues.proteins within the energy-producing sub-cellular organelle known as the mitochondrion.
Neandertal
A species of hominid (Homo neandertalensis) that lived 150,000-30,000 years ago. Formerly known as Neanderthals.
Bipedal
The ability to walk upright on two legs.
