From DNA Sequences to Proteins DNA base sequence of a gene is the template for polymerization of a complementary mR NA (messenger RNA) - Transcription . mRNA base sequence is the template for polymerization of a peptide - Translation . Each sequence of 3 bases determines one amino acid in the protein. Peptides and proteins have functions, and these functions are manifested as phenotypes.

Central Dogma of Molecular Biology Replication - DNA (the blue print) serves as template for DNA polymerization, so cell division can proceed. Transcription - DNA serves as template for RNApolymerization (the instruction set), for translation. Translation - RNA serves as template for peptide (the tractors, etc.) polymerization. Because nucleotides and amino acids are dissimilar, adaptors (tRNA) are necessary.
