Yes, nucleic acids, proteins and starch can be considered as step growth polymers. Step growth polymers are actually condensation polymers in which large number of polynucleotides, ($\alpha$-amino acids and $\alpha$-D-glucose units combine together with the loss of $H _{ 2 }O$ molecules leading to the formation of high molecular mass nucleic acids, proteins and starch.
