FC: 11.1 DNA
1: Deoxyribonucleic Acid
2: DNA is found inside the nucleus of eukaryotic cells. Chromatin is DNA that is in it's uncondensed form.
4: Chromosomes are sections of DNA that are wrapped around histones and tightly coiled.
5: Karyotyes show all of an organism's chromosomes.
6: Nucleotides consist of a five-carbon sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base. | DNA is made up of repeating subunits called nucelotides.
8: Adenine (A) always pairs with Thymine (T). Cytosine (C) always pairs with Guanine (G).
9: The structure formed by double-stranded molecules of nucleic acids is called a double helix.
11: DNA replication is the process of making copies of DNA from a existing DNA template.
