Nucleic Acid By: Elise McIntyre

The definition:

Nuclei Acids are the building blocks of living organisms. It's is a very large molecule made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus.
Types of Nucleic Acid: DNA, RNA, mRNA, tRNA
They are made of three main parts. 1. Sugar 2. Phosphate group 3. Nitrogen base.
The founder of nucleic acid was Friedrich Miescher

DNA contains the intrusctions cells use to carry out the functions of life. In DNA, Adenine bonds with thymine and guanine bonds with cytosine. RNA uses information in DNA to assemble the correct ánimo Acids and help make the protein. RNA includes the same parts as DNA, but it replaces thymine with uracil.

DNA is contains your genetic code, which makes you, you! It is known as the "blueprints" of life. You get your genes from your mother and father.

Basically...

Mother + Father = You! (DNA makes you look and act differently from everyone else)

These foods are high in nucleic acid.
Nucleic Acid is found in a cells nuclei.

In conclusion:

Nucleic Acid is awesome! It helps us with DNA and RNA, and makes everyone unique!
