Transcribing DNA to RNA
Lecture no. 30 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
RNA is more than simply a copy of the DNA blueprint. Focus on the synthesis of RNA, covering how it differs from DNA replication. Also learn how human cells shuffle their genetic code to make about 100,000 different proteins using fewer than 30,000 coding sequences. Finally, see how knowledge of transcription occurring after death helps forensic scientists establish the time of death accurately.
