Please answer two of the questions below as a posting in the on-line discussion (conference).

Make your comments on at least one answer presented by another student.

Place your posts and replies in the folder "Learning Unit 2".

1) Define the process of DNA replication.

2) Define the process of complementary base pairing in the process of DNA synthesis.

3) What is a result of the transcription process? What is a result of the translation process?

4) There are 64 amino acids corresponding to all possible mRNA codons. Using the start codon, one stop codon, and one of the possible codons for particular amino acid, determine one possible sequence of bases in the DNA molecule to be created if a protein has the following sequence of amino acids:


Fill in: 

mRNA codons ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ _____ ____
