DNA vs. RNA By: Brylan Barrier

DNA takes the role of storing information for a long period of time
carries the genetic information copied from DNA in the form of a series of three-base code, each of which specifies a particular amino acid.
tRNAs function at specific sites in the ribosome during translation, which is a process that synthesizes a protein from an mRNA molecule.
Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) associates with a set of proteins to form ribosomes. These complex structures, which physically move along an mRNA molecule, catalyze the assembly of amino acids into protein chains.

- Helicase splits the DNA into 2 strands

-the binding of RNA Primase in the the initiation point. RNA Primase can attract RNA nucleotides

-Next the RNA reads the template

-Then when the template is read the daughter cell is starting to be formed

-The nucleus is formed, then the daughter cell is formed

-This is all located in the nucleus.

RNA polymerase binds to DNA at a specific sequence of nucleotides called the promoter.The promoter contains an initiation site where transcription of the gene begins.RNA polymerase than unwinds DNA at the beginning of the gene.The ribosome binds to mRNA at a specific area.The ribosome starts matching tRNA anticodon sequences to the mRNA codon sequence.When a small subunit of a ribosome charged with a tRNA+the amino acid methionine encounters an mRNA, it attaches and starts to scan for a start signal. Some of it is in the nucleus and some of it is in the cytoplasm.

a cell reads information from a molecule called a messenger RNA (mRNA) and uses this information to build a protein. Translation is happening constantly in a normal bacterial cell, just like it is in most of the cells of your body, and it's key to keeping you (and your bacterial "visitors") alive.
The bases pair up and match, A=T, C=G
