BIO320 Study Guide - lectures 14 and 15 Gene expression: the genetic code, transcription and translation. Goals After these lectures and further independent study, you should … - understand how biological information is stored as base sequence in DNA and expressed as amino-acid sequence in proteins via an mRNA intermediate. - understand the experiments that demonstrated the existence of mRNA, and the properties and content of the genetic code. - know in detail all steps and components that mediate the flow of information from DNA to RNA (transcription) and RNA to protein (translation). Understand the structural bases for the specificity of the genetic code at each step, especially the role of tRNAs and amino-acyl-tRNA synthetases. - be able to apply base-pairing and coding rules (using a provided code table) to predict transcript and protein sequences from a given DNA sequence, and to predict codon and anticodon sequences from amino-acid sequences.
