Students will be able to
- state the components of an RNA molecule as being nucleotides, with the nitrogenous bases AUGC,
- compare and contrast the structures of RNA and DNA, including which pentose sugar is in the nucleotides, the formation of double or single strands, and the difference between the nitrogenous bases,
- describe and identify the structures of tRNA and mRNA,
- recall the roles of tRNA and mRNA in translation and the role of rRNA in forming ribosomes.
