DNA Expression in Proteins
Lecture no. 6 from the course: Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications
Taught by Professor David Sadava | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Proteins are made up of chains of 20 amino acids ordered in a particular sequence for each protein. Humans cannot produce eight of those 20 amino acids, although we still need them for proper nutrition. Professor Sadava explains what proteins are, how they relate to DNA, and why they're significant to us.
