What Are the Sides of the DNA Ladder Made of?


When studying biology, a student may be required to know what the sides of the DNA ladder are made of. The answer is simple in that they are made up of sugar and phosphates. The rungs of the ladder are made up of four types of nitrogen bases. The full name of DNA is deoxyribonucleic acid and can be found in the mitochondria and chloroplasts. James Watson and Francis Crick actually established the structure of DNA, which is in the shape of a twisted ladder.
