Question description

How is DNA replicated, and how is stored genetic information used to produce an active protein in the cell?


1. That’s a very broad question--so how much detail should you include? Make sure your answer is 350 words long, and that it addresses each of the parts of the question. In other words, don’t spend 300 words on replication, then cram in two sentences about the rest.

2. Use the appropriate jargon, and use it correctly. I assume your answer will include all these terms (and lots more): • Replication, Transcription, Translation

• Polymerase

• Semiconservative, Semidiscontinuous, Bidirectional

• Complementary

• Basepair

• Origin

• Promoter


• Genetic Code


• Ribosome

• Codon, anticodon

• Prokaryote, Eukaryote
