An in-depth adventure through RNA Processing and Translation. Strengthen your scientific thinking and biological experimental design skills. In Part 3 of 7.28x, you’ll explore translation of mRNA to protein, a key part of the central dogma of biology. Do you know how RNA turnover or RNA splicing affects the outcome of translation? Although not official steps in the central dogma, the mechanisms of RNA processing strongly influence gene expression.

An in-depth adventure through DNA replication and repair to strengthen your scientific thinking and experimental design skills. You’re acquainted with your DNA, but did you know that your cells synthesize enough DNA during your lifetime to stretch a lightyear in length? How does the cellular machinery accomplish such a feat without making more mistakes than you can survive?
