 9.16 Test  Unit 1 Test - Intro and Chemistry Biochemistry Search - There are four main macromolecules - Nucleic Acids, Lipids, Carbohydrates, and Protein

For Each
- List the elements they contain
- Describe their roles in cells/organisms
-Describe the structure of each- Example- A Protein is made up of building blocks called Amino Acids. There are 20 different amino acids and the shape of the protein depends on the order of the amino acids and amino acid used.
