tRNA: molecular shape

 Transfer RNA,tRNA is shaped like a capital T.

 

Sickle cell anemia: mutation

"HbS isn't Very Good":

           At Sixth position of Hb beta chain, Valine is present instead of Glutamic acid.

              Remember Valine is the villain. 

  DNA bond strength (nucleotides)

"Crazy Glue":

Strongest bonds are between Cytosine and Guanine, strong like Crazy Glue (3 H-bonds), whereas the A=T only have 2 H-bonds. · This is relevant to DNA replication, as the weaker A=T will be the site where RNA primer makes the initial break.
