the decoding of a mRNA message into a protein(peptide chain)
3 phases of translation
initiation, elongation, termination
each codon specifies a particular amino acid that is to be place in the polypeptide chain
AUG is called an "initiation codon",
There are also 3 "stop" codons, they do not code for an amino acid.
is a start codon
3 major codons
UAA, UAG, UGA
TAC, AAA, TTT, CAG, AAC, TTC, CAT
AUG, UUU, AAA, GUc, UGG, AAg, GUA
UAC, AAA, UUU, CAG, AAC, UUC, CAU
met, phe, lys, val, leu, try, val

Smooth colony(disease) was injected in mouse so mouse died.
What is the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology?
Rough colony was injected in mouse so mouse lived.
When heat smooth colony was injected mouse lived.
Injected the heat-killed type and the non-deadly rough type bacteria. The deadly bacteria "transformed" itself from the heated non-deadly type to the deadly type. Rat died.
THey found out DNA was the transforming facts.
Briefly describe how Aver, McCarty and McLeod further developed Griffiths experiment.
They put non-deadly rough type no heat-killed smooth type which put in different test types which had different enzymes that destroyed various organic molecules.
Explain the experiment and the results of the Hershey-Chase experiment, which is visualized below.
Equal amount of ademine and Thymine, and equal amounts of Guanine and Cytosine
According to Chargaff's rule, how do the bases of DNA pair with one another?
One is purine and pyrimidine fit in the latter
Why do they pair in this way.
What about DNA did this image reveal?
Watson and Crick
Who won the race to discover DNA's structure?
Phosphorous and deoxyribose four nucleotides, denine, thymine, guadanine and cytosine
What is the backbone of DNA made of?
manner in which cells store program that they pas form one generation the the next
process by which genetic material absorbed from the environment is added to or replaces part of bacterium's DNA
nucleic acid that stores & transmits genetic information from one generation to an organisms to the next by coding for the production of a cell's proteins.
unit of a nucleic acid that is made up a f-carbon sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base
nitrogenous base in nucleic acids, belonging to the purines; base pairs with thymine or uracil

nitrogenous base is nucleic acids belonging to the pyrimidines; base pairs with guanine
nitrogenous base found in DNA but not in RNA; base pairs with ademine
attraction between complementary nitrogenous bases that produce a force that holds the two strands of the DNA double helix together
process by which DNA is duplicated before a cell divides.
nucleic acid made up of a single chain of nucleotides that acts as a messenger between DNA and the ribosome and carries out the process by which proteins are made from amino acids.
nitrogenous base found on in RNA;base pairs with adenine
process by which a molecule of DNA is copied into a complementary strand of RNA.
of RNA that carries genetic information from DNA in the nucleus out to the ribosomes in the cytoplasm.
3 nucleotide sequence on messenger RNA that codes for an amino acid
process in which a message carried by messenger RNA is decoded into polypeptide chain(protein)
type of RNA that carries amino acids to the ribosomes where the amino acids are joined together to form polypeptides
type of RNA that makes up the major part of the ribosomes
3-nucleotide sequence in transfer RNA that base pairs with a complementary sequence in messenger RNA during protein synthesis
