|Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids|
Watson & Crick put forward a radically different structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid. One remarkable thing about the DNA molecule is that it can build an exact copy of itself. A standard biology textbook states; the process of duplicating itself is known as replication. During replication, enzymes break the weak hydrogen bonds the bases of the nucleotides. DNA separates into two halves, and this separation exposes the nucleotide bases to its complementary base- Adenine to Thymine, Guanine to Cytosine. This painting celebrates the marvel discovery of these two scientists and depicts the beauty of their discovery.
