  1. Transcription
    RNA Synthesis
  2. Why can wee share so much of our genome with other organism but we are so different phenotypically?
    • Transcription is where this ability starts.
    • Genes are transcribed at different rates, in different amounts, and at different times.
    • The activation of the gene results in different phenotypes.
  3. RNA vs. DNA
    • RNA
    • We have a hydroxyl group attached to carbon 2 in RNA ( sugar ribose)
    • RNA is destroyed while DNA is generally forever.
    • Single stranded
    • Ability to hybridize
  4. What makes RNA so much like a protein ?
    RNA is very much like protein because of its ability to fold into different shapes.
