... A biopolymer
is a polymer found in nature.
Starch , proteins and peptides , and DNA and RNA are all examples of biopolymers, in which the monomer ...
... since many biological processes are driven by the cleavage of anhydrous pyrophosphate bonds.
In biochemistry , to specify the primary structure of an unbranched biopolymer
, such as a molecule of DNA , RNA or protein , is to name the species of every subunit ( nucleotide or amino acid ) in order from the ...
... structure, most notably single-stranded RNA molecules.
At a higher level, secondary structure generally reflects how individual molecules in a biopolymer
are connected to each other, e.g. whether or not individual nucleotides in an RNA molecule are connected. It does not, however, refer to their ...
In genetics and biochemistry , sequencing means to determine the primary structure (or primary sequence) of an unbranched biopolymer
. Sequencing results in a symbolic linear depiction known as a sequence which succinctly summarizes much of the atomic-level structure of the ...
