Technically it is a complex technique, but some understanding can be gained using qualitative arguments.

X-rays are not used, but instead the patient is placed in a ‘strong’ magnetic field (around 30 000 times as strong as the Earth's magnetic field

2.1 The primary structure of nucleic acids

We now know the detail of the order of individual bases, i.e. the genome sequence, of many of the organisms listed in Table 1. In Section 2 we will focus on the structures of nucleic acids within the cell, and we will start this discussion by outlining some of the general principles that apply to all nucleic acid structures.

Where Do You Get Your Energy?
Cells extract energy from sugar to produce ATP, the molecular fuel that powers all life processes. This interactive activity adapted from Exploratorium delves into the processes that enable cells to unlock the energy contained in the foods we consume. We often use the term "energy" as an informal shorthand for our ability to stay alert and complete tasks. In fact, the presence of energy-rich molecules and our cells' ability to obtain, process, and
