Study Notes

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a crucial molecule in living cells, as it encodes the instructions for life and is responsible for carrying and transmitting genetic information from parents to offspring[100][101][102][103][104][105][106][108][109][110][111][112][113][114][115][116][118][119][120][121][122][123][124][125][126][128][129][130][131][132][133][134][135][136][138][139][140][141][142][143][144][145][146][148][149][150][151][152][153][154][155][156][158][159][160][161][162][163][164][165][166][168][169][180][181][182][183][184][185][186][188][189][190][191][192][193][194][195][196][198][199][200][201][202][203][204][205][206][208][209][210][211][212][213][214][215][216][218][219][220][221][222][223][224][225][226][228][229][230][231][232][233][234][235][236][238][239][240][241][242][243][244][245][246][248][249][250][251][252][253][254][255][256][258][259][260][261][262][263][264][265][266][268][269][280][281][282][283][284][285][286][288][289][290][291][292][293][294][295][296][298][299][300][301][302][303][304][305][306][308][309][310][311][312][313][314][315][316][318][319][320][321][322][323][324][325][326][328][329][330][331][332][333][334][335][336][338][339][340][341][342][343][344][345][346][348][349][350][351][352][353][354][355][356][358][359][360][361][362][363][364][365][366][368][369][380][381][382][383][384][385][386][388][389][390][391][392][393][394][395][396][398][399][400][401][402][403][404][405][406][408][409][410][411][412][413][414][415][416][418][419][420][421][422][423][424][425][426][428][429][430][431][432][433][434][435][436][438][439][440][441][442][443][444][445][446][448][449][450][451][452][453][454][455][456][458][459][460][461][462][463][464][465][466][468][469][480][481][482][483][484][485][486][488][489][490][491][492][493][494][495][496][498][499][500][501][502][503][504][505][506][508][509][510][511][512][513][514][515][516][518][519][520][521][522][523][524][525][526][528][529][530][531][532][533][534][535][536][538][539][540][541][542][543][544][545][546][548][549][550][551][552][553][554][555][556][558][559][560][561][562][563][564][565][566][568][569][580][581][582][583][584][585][586][588][589][590][591][592][593][594][595][596][598][599][600][601][602][603][604][605][606][608][609][610][611][612][613][614][615][616][618][619][620][621][622][623][624][625][626][628][6
