RNA vs. DNA Transcription: happens inside nucleus, DNA splits in region of gene and attracts complementary ribonucleotides Complementary messengenr RNA-strand synthesized, leave nucleus and travel to the ribosome for protein synthesis Translation: when mRNA binds to the ribosome protein synthesis is initiated, as each codon in mRNA sequence is read, tRNA brings the corresponding amino acid to ribosome RNA, tRNA, mRNA, Translation, Transcription. . LOOK UP REST IN BOOK DNA Mutation: errors in DNA replication, new genetic code, new genetic variance, genotypes, to phenotypes; chromosomal mutations, point mutations; if mutation occurs during meiosis, it may be passed to the next generation; When mutation occurs at the level of the nucleotide base, it may or may not alter function Mendelain Inheritance: single gene, autosomal dominant-recessive model; useful for examining traits with qualitative variation (discrete categories) examples: pea seed color, ABO blood system, albinism,
