Practice: What is the central dogma of molecular biology directly referring to?

Practice: Consider a DNA template strand of the following sequence: 5’-A C T G C C A G G A A T-3’.

A) What is the sequence of the corresponding DNA coding strand? Include directionality.

DNA Template Strand: 5’-A C T G C C A G G A A T-3’.

DNA Coding Strand:


B) What is the sequence of the corresponding mRNA strand? Include directionality.

mRNA Strand:

Practice: Consider a DNA coding strand with the following sequence: 3’-C T T C A T A G C T C G-5’.

Use the genetic code to determine the corresponding amino acid sequence of the translated protein.
