If the nucleotide sequence within the DNA template strand of a gene is CGGATCAT, what will be the sequence of nucleotides in the RNA transcript of that template?

In the elongation stage of transcription, RNA polymerase links RNA nucleotides together forming a RNA molecule called an mRNA transcript . The rules of base pairing in transcription are the same as in DNA replication  with one exception an A on the DNA template ends up as U(recall from chapter 8 there is no T in RNA so there is no A:T pairing  in the RNA transcript
