The information structure of the cell is found in nucleotides, consisting of only four different molecules. These are trapped inside the familiar double helix of deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA). The energy for the cell comes from the oxidation of carbon. Energy is stored in the form of highenergy phosphate bonds coupled to a nucleic acid in an adenosine tri-phosphate molecule (ATP). Quiz 1. Biomolecules: (a) behave differently than molecules outside of a living system. (b) are formed from a backbone of hydrogen.

This configuration is called a synapsis. If you were observing this four-abreast configuration, you would see the limbs of the inside chromosomes begin to intertwine, as if in an ancient embrace. Then portions of the chromosomes actually change places. Clearly, genes that are far apart on the chromosome are more likely to become separated than genes that are close together. When we discuss the research that determines the location of a given gene on a chromosome, you will learn that one way of determining how far apart genes are on a chromosome is by how often they get separating during this mix-and-match exercise.
