Chapter 11: Nucelic Acid Structure, DNA Replicaiton, and Chromosome Structure (Erica)

Page history last edited by Erica Choi 13 years, 6 months ago

In the first section of this page, you will write a daily summary of that day's class.  For example in  your chapter 2 blog, your first entry should be titled 9/3/10.  You should then write a one or two paragraph summary of that day's lecture, outlining the major points.  In the second section, you are required to add two items (link to a website, video, animation, student-created slide show, student-created PowerPoint presentation) and one journal article pertaining to a topic in this chapter.  A one-paragraph summary must accompany each item describing the main idea and how it applies to the lecture topic.  Please see the PBWorks help guide for assistance embedding video and other items directly in the page.  I will also produce a how-to video on using tables to wrap text around items and other useful tips.  Please see the syllabus for organization and grading details.

  I found this video while looking for helpful videos for dna replication, and I thought it was cute and helpful. 
  This is a good, quick summary and animation of the dna replication process, the only thing that it leaves out is that the DNA polymerase is read from 3'-5; and then is built from 5'-3' on both strands.
http://www.cell.com/cancer-cell/abstract/S1535-6108(08)00193-1   This article discusses how in order to prevent the growth of cancer cells, the replication stress that is put on cell is important to prevent the progression of the S phase, and maintenance of genomic stability. Otherwise, if cells pass this checkpoint, they undergo aberrant or uncontrolled mitosis with lagging chromosomes.

This is a picture of nucleic acid structure, you can see the nitrogenous base as well as the R groups.
