I would love to join our society. I'm interesting and fascinating about biology and other natural sciences! So Introduce myself!
Name: Gregorius alias Kallisto
Hobbies: reading, art, martial art, sport (mainly martial art ), natural science (physics, biology and chemistry of course)
Where you live: Anywhere in Germany
Current Studying level: Studying for my life and an A-level at the moment!
What you are studying: natural sciences (physics, biology and chemistry), languages (German, English and Latin) and social sciences (history and politic/economy) - these are my subjects.
Hero(s): Gregor Mendel is one of my hero in biology: he has discovered the mendelian inheritance which were an important step in genetics in my opinion!

I'm wonder why there is no a member who is writing in this topic. Okay, it's my turn again!
I'm reading doctrines about molecular genetics. I want to know what happen by a glycosidic bond. Why is it so important for DNA? Please answer in a short comment, if it's possible.

Esterification is different as it has the following group:

Hmmm... that sounds after an esterification as in a reaction between deoxyribose and phosphoric acid in this case. One water molecule is lost as well by this reacton. That's why I think a glycosic bond is also an esterification. That makes sense, because a condensation reaction IS an one. Am I right?
, whereas a glycosidic bond has the following group:
