Step 1

Biomolecules are those molecules which are essential for existence of life. These include carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids etc.

Out of these, proteins exist in different structures which are referred to as primary, secondary, tertiary and quarternary structure. 

Step 2

Primary structure is composed of just amino acid chain linked by peptide bond.

Secondary structure, such as alpha helix and beta pleated sheets, are stabalized by hydrogen bonds.

Tertiary or three dimensional structure is stabalized by various forces such as covalent bonding and noncovalent intermolecular forces.

Disulfide bridges are classified under covalent bonds.

Non covalent interactions include, electro...
