Recap 2

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    In this lesson we learned some new concepts, that can be summarized into five
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    main points. Point one, our genomes hold
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    information, and are made of a basic molecule
  • 0:09 - 0:15
    called DNA. Point two, the basic building blocks of DNA are four different
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    types of deoxynucleotides, called adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine,
  • 0:20 - 0:26
    or A, T, G and C. Point three:
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    Long molecules of DNA are organized around
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    histone proteins into individual structures called chromosomes.
  • 0:33 - 0:39
    Point four: 3 billion base pairs of DNA are organized into 22 pairs of autosomes
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    and one pair of sex chromosomes that can be found in the nucleus. And point
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    five, the total human genome is composed
  • 0:47 - 0:50
    of elements from our nuclear and mitochondrial chromosomes.
