Greetings, There has been a devastating mutation in the DNA strands of everybody in Texas, and we need you to make a new sequence.

A nice and easy one to start with - in what order is the vast majority of genetic information transcribed (the central dogma of biology)?

DNA>Protien>RNA

Protien>RNA>DNA

DNA>RNA>Protien

RNA>Protien>DNA

Which of the following enzymes is responsible for unwinding DNA strands before transcription occus?

Topoisomerase

DNA Polymerase

Ligase

Helicase

What type of RNA is responsible for carrying genetic information from DNA to the ribosomes?

Ribosomal RNA

Messenger RNA

Transfer RNA

Molecular RNA

Termination: stop codon reached, process ends

Initiation: rRNA interacts with mRNA strand at first start codon

Elongation: tRNA molecules match codons and anticodons, length of strand increases
