Quiz on Biomolecules

All molecules or chemicals functional in living organisms are known as biomolecules. Proteins, Carbohydrates, Lipids and Nucleic acids  are the most abundant bio molecules. Carbohydrates are nature's most abundant organic substance and principal source of energy.  Fats and their derivatives are together known as lipids. They are heterogeneous group containing mainly carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Nucleic acids are the polymer of nucleotides which are major components of all cells. Read more>>
