What is he process of identifying the sequence of nucleotides along a segment of DNA?
In the DNA, the sequence of nucleotides determines how proteins are built, with each segment of three nucleotides encoding a single amino acid. When one nucleotide is inserted into the sequence, the whole sequence shifts, and all the triples are changed completely, which can cause detrimental mutations.
Why did make sure to include the start and stop DNA sequences for the jellyfish glo gene in our cut segment?
A segment of DNA has the following sequence TTAAGGCC. Which sequence of bases would be found on the complementary strand of mRNA GGCCUUAA AAUUCCGG AATTCCGG GGCCTTAA?
A gene. DNA codes for messenger RNA: each DNA nucleotide complementarily hydrogen-bonds with RNA nucleotides. A codon is a segment of three nucleotides in the RNA molecule that carries the code of one amino acid. A codon complementarily and very specifically hydrogen bonds with the anticodon of a tRNA molecule. The amino acids encoded by the messenger RNA join to form a polypeptide chain through a polymerization process.
