7 BIO 1140 Unit 2-2: Transcription Is the genome what we think it is?
Useful concepts for this course
DNA genome (genome) functional analysis all the DNA Epigenomics Comments
The original, includes cloning & now sequence
DNA modifications Inheritable changes in phenotype (epigenome) not caused by genotype functions of modifcations Transcriptomics mRNA (transcriptome) Proteomics Can vary between cells,
time, condition etc. Protein May take into account modifications (proteome)
8 Retro-posone is a version of a retro-virus that cannot
escape the cell. INTESPERSED NUCLEAR
ELEMENTS, some are large and others small. The
large ones are capable of coding genes that help
them move. Some have reversed transciptase. smalls
ones can cause mutations. simple sequence...
