how do you remember which atom forms hydrogen bonds for example in adenine and thymine and how do you remember which atom forms bonds with the sugar etc? Is there a technique to remember it or does anyone have a chart with all the atoms that are circled to show what atom bonds to what.

What do you mean? I don't really understand. Are you talking about phosphodiester bonds or A=T C=-G

Hi there.

I think bonding can occur between H and either N or O on another base in DNA due to the large electronegativity difference between atoms

like in the exam we are only given the data sheet but in the exam there's questions like draw the hydrogen bonds between these 2 amino acids or draw the structure of this nucleotide. How do we know which part of the amino acid forms a bond?
