Assignment: Draw a diagram of a eukaryotic messenger RNA, and include in it each of the essential components that we have discussed in class. The material in topics 19-29 will give you the information needed to do this. Assume that splicing has not yet occurred on this mRNA, and include a single intron in your mRNA.
