1. Nucleotide
A subunit of DNA or RNA consisting of a nitrogenous base ( adenine , guanine , thymine , or cytosine in DNA; adenine, guanine, uracil , or cytosine in RNA), a phosphate molecule, and a sugar molecule (deoxyribose in DNA and ribose in RNA). Thousands of nucleotide s are linked to form a DNA or RNA molecule.

2. Nucleotide sequences
