Storyboard Text

  • A stands for Adenine and G is for Guanine which are purines
  • C stands for Cytosine and T for Thymine which are pyrimidines and in RNA, Adenine pairs with Uracil (U)
  • So, who discovered that this structure was a double helix?
  • James Watson and Francis Crick!
  • And with the help of Rosalind Franklin's X-Ray machinery, it lead to the discovery!
  • Wow guys, I find this fascinating! So, my DNA can help determine my characteristics?
  • Yeah! That's why I have black hair and I'm tall
  • And that's why I have red hair!
  • The sugar in RNA is different compared to DNA. DNA's sugar is Deoxyribose
  • And RNA's sugar is Ribose! RNA also has one strand not 2
  • In which direction are the strands read in?
  • That's a great question Josh! Well, strands are written 5' to 3' For example: 5'-TACG-3'
  • 5' will always pair with 3' and 3' will always pair with 5'!
  • Yes! That is correct Josh! Wow you're really good at this!
  • So, the complementary strand of DNA that matches: 5'-AGGTAC-3' is 3'-TCCATG-5'?
