Students will be able to
- outline the flow of genetic information from DNA to mRNA,
- describe the process of transcription, including the role of RNA polymerase(s) in prokaryotes and eukaryotes,
- use knowledge of bases and base pairings to convert DNA sequences into mRNA sequences,
- recall where transcription occurs in a eukaryotic cell,
- describe post-transcriptional modifications that occur in eukaryotes such as the splicing of introns and the addition of poly(A) tails.
