short section of a DNA molecule which is coded for one specific protein which controls one specific physical characteristic
long section of DNA molecule which is made up of many genes
building block of DNA or RNA; always contains a sugar, a phosphate, and a base
messenger RNA; This is the RNA which copies the gene inside the nucleus and then moves to the ribosome to be "read"
transfer RNA; This is the RNA that is coded for specific amino acids and transfers those amino acids to the ribosome for assembly into a protein
series of three bases on a section of an mRNA molecule which are the "code" for a specific anticodon and its attached amino acid
series of three bases on a section of a tRNA molecule which are the complementary partners for the mRNA codon
