Transcription and Translation: From DNA to Protein

Transcription and Translation: From DNA to Protein

Hey it’s professor Dave, let’s talk about DNA transcription and translation. Now that we understand the structure of DNA it’s time to understand exactly how this molecule codes for a particular organism. How is it that a single cell containing a specific set of genetic material will result in the development of a fish or …
