Nucleotides are the foundations of nucleic acid codes like DNA and RNA. They are key components in energy carriers like ATP and electron carriers like NADH. Our nucleotides webinar completes our set of webinars on biomolecules, and also complements our existing genetics webinars on DNA and RNA.
At a glance
Identify H-donors and acceptors in nucleotides as well as potential modifications
Identify the phosphodiester between nucleotides
Follow mechanisms and experimental modifications with nucleotides
Makeup of the standard nucleotide
The 2 classes of nucleotides and the 5 major nucleotides
Nucleotides of DNA and RNA and their base pairing
Nucleotides in electron carriers, energy carriers and secondary messengers
On the MCAT
Nucleotides have strong connections with genetics and genetic techniques. Scientists often modify nucleotides for experimental purposes.
Make sure you know how the phosphodiester is formed! The test loves testing biomolecules and their major bonds, down to the nucleophile and electrophile.
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
