Even so, since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key word “nucleotide” to get these possible sources:
You can do the same for your other concepts. In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
