Genes are composed of nucleic acids (usually DNA). Pneumococcus can be transformed from an avirulent to a virulent strain DNA is the transforming principle DNA in bacteriophage particles appears in the progeny, but very little protein does. Structures of nucleic acids. Nucleotides

1st phosphate is a phosphoester, others are attached as phosphoanhydrides.
The 3’ C of one nucleotide is linked to the 5’ C of the next nucleotide in a phosphodiester linkage.
Guanine : Cytosine
Adenine : Thymine
