DNA Replication and Protein Synthesis

Refer to notes on Organic Macromolecules for Structure of Nucleic Acids (DNA and RNA) and Proteins before commencing these notes.

DNA Replication

Protein Synthesis

  1. Transcription (DNA makes all 3 forms of RNA in the nucleus)
  2. Translation (DNA plus all 3 forms of RNA together make proteins at the ribosome in the cytoplasm)
