What's new on Biology
- May 15, 2010
- Not much has been happening here lately. It seems a user named Davichito adopted this wiki in 2008, but since then there has been minimal activity. I am working to revitalize this wiki. If you'd like to help out... I'd appreciate it. Elainaph 04:13, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

- Uploading images is another really easy way to help out - see the Special:Upload page!
- You can find a list of useful templates on Category:Templates, some of which are documented on the templates project page.
- Talk and more...
Deoxyribonucleic acid, is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and some viruses. It is made of repeated blocks (polymers) called nucleotides, which together form the shape of a double helix. Each nucleotide has a nitrogenous base, a sugar, and one or more phosphate groups. The nitrogenous base is the changing element. It can be adenine, cytosine, guanine or thymine. The bases are either purines or pyrimidines. The purine bases are adenine and guanine and the pyrimidines are cytosine and thymine. The sugar is deoxyribose.
