Suppose we have a genomic DNA of 1000 kb. It gives two products: 1000 kb product and 200 kb product. What can you infer about the nucleic acid nature of each product? Which process will give the 1000 kb product and which will generate the 200 kb product?
Nucleic acids are polynucleotides—that is, long chainlike molecules composed of a series of nearly identical building blocks called nucleotides. Each nucleotide consists of a nitrogen-containing aromatic base attached to a pentose (five-carbon) sugar, which is in turn attached to a phosphate group.
