Transcription and translation

RNA is an extended string of bases similar to a strand of DNA, except that the bottom uracil (U) replaces the bottom thymine (T). Therefore, RNA contains information that is triplet-coded like DNA.

Whenever transcription is set up, area of the DNA double helix splits open and unwinds. Continue reading “Transcription is the method by which information coded in DNA is transferred (transcribed) to ribonucleic acid (RNA)”
