This is a introductory power point into DNA It goes over DNA's history, scientists involved and it's basic structure nucleotides and importance of hydrogen bonding. Students will also learn how the bases pair up.
An excellent prep-lesson to protein synthesis.

Texas Biology TEKS
(5) Science concepts. The student knows how an organism grows and the importance of cell differentiation. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the stages of the cell cycle, including deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) replication and mitosis, and the importance of the cell cycle to the growth of organisms;
(C) describe the roles of DNA, ribonucleic acid (RNA), and environmental factors in cell differentiation; and
(6) Science concepts. The student knows the mechanisms of genetics, including the role of nucleic acids and the principles of Mendelian Genetics. The student is expected to:
(A) identify components of DNA, and describe how information for specifying the traits of an organism is carried in the DNA;
(B) recognize that components that make up the genetic code are common to all organisms;
(C) explain the purpose and process of transcription and translation using models of DNA and RNA;
NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS
HS-LS3-1. Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
