is synthetic dna organic

Recommended Posts

Is the synthetic dna which is manmade, made organic just like the original dna?

 

Thanks.

Exactly what do you mean by organic? If you are referring to this, the DNA compounds they make are still organic macromolecules since they still contain a carbon based framework. I'm not sure if that answers your question or not, however.

I want to know, is there any difference between an natural organic molecule and an manmade organic molecule.

nope.

 

a molecule has no memory, so as long as the atoms are in the right configuration it is impossible to tell whether the molecule came from a biological or synthetic source.

 

of course, if we are considering bought chemical then it IS often possible to tell. The biological origin stuff tends to have a lot more contamination than the synthetic stuff. Please note, contaminant in this case means 'anything other than the desired substance', not necessarily harmful'
