Nucleic Acids (Textbook)

Nucleic Acids, Structure

This lesson reviews the structure of nucleotides and how they combine to form a nucleic acid. Duration: 5:06.

Nucleic Acids, Function

A review of how the DNA molecule undergoes replication along with an introduction to the role of RNA in the creation of proteins. Duration: 5:52.

Nucleic Acids, Gene to Protein

An in-depth look into how information within DNA is transcribed into RNA, which is then used to translate this information into a protein. Duration: 9:18.

Nucleic Acids, Genetic Engineering

Placing the gene of one organism into a second organism for the purpose of creating large quantities of the protein coded for by that gene is a process known as genetic engineering, which had its beginning with the discovery of restriction enzymes. Duration: 6:48.
