- 1.3: The Structure of DNA
- The experiments outlined in the previous sections proved that DNA was the genetic material, but very little was known about its structure at the time.
- 1.6: The Nuclear Genome
- The complete set of DNA within the nucleus of any organism is called its nuclear genome and is measured as the C-value in units of either the number of base pairs or picograms of DNA. There is a general correlation between the nuclear DNA content of a genome (i.e. the C-value) and the physical size or complexity of an organism.
