Raye Lynn Alford, PhD provides a fresh look at genetics beginning with a discussion of the elements and molecular components found in DNA and RNA, including adenine, cytosine, guanine, thymine and the sugar-phosphate backbone of DNA (RNA contains uracil instead of thymine), and continues with DNA and RNA strands and strand sequences, the DNA double helix, genetic codes, and the processes of genetic replication, transcription and translation.
