How does the information in DNA determine the essential functions of life?
DNA must be copied. This process has many steps. Last week we looked at the big picture of the CELL CYCLE - now we are focusing in on DNA replication and the production of proteins. RNA is a new member in the equation. All of our proteins are coded for in our DNA - that gets copied into RNA - that travels out of the nucleus to ribosomes - to be read and translated to build proteins! WHEW - so many process and vocab words! Make sure you STUDY this week!
