DNA's Chemical Makeup
As already mentioned in the previous section, DNA is made up of specific molecules including sugars, phosphate groups and its functional 'bases'. This section will outline the primary chemical makeups of these particular molecules.
The nucleotides themselves, which make up the backbone of the polymer strands consist of a sugar (known as a pentose because of its nuclear shape), a phosphate group and a base (either Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine or Thymine). Below are some pictures of the chemical nucleotide.
The bases, separated into two different groups, known as the purines and the pyrimidines are illustrated below in terms of their chemical makeup. (Also included in this diagram is Uracil, which although closely related to thymine, is actually a part of the RNA molecule, as opposed to the DNA molecule.
Description : The work of geneticists who have labored for years to map human DNA is the subject of this offbeat yet highly informative documentary from the PBS series Nova. Host Robert Krulwich, a correspondent for ABC Nightline, visits with scientists who explain, in terms understandable to laymen, the enormous challenges faced and overcome by scientists working on the Human Genome Project.

Description : What makes DNA different from hordes of competitors purporting to help readers understand genetics is that it is written by none other than James Watson, of Watson and Crick fame. He and his co-author Andrew Berry have produced a clear and easygoing history of genetics, from Mendel through genome sequencing. Watson offers readers a sense of immediacy, a behind-the scenes familiarity with some of the most exciting developments in modern science.
