VOCAB QUIZ

1.
The Central Dogma is...
a: Amino acid coding sequence of three nucleotides
b: Movement of nucleic acid-based information about cells is classically considered to be contrained
c: The synthesis of a final product (such as a protein or rRNA or tRNA) initially templated from a gene



2.
Replication is...
a: Amino acid coding sequence of three nucleotides
b: the information in RNA is used to create a protein
c: When all of an organism's DNA is copied. For humans, that means copying around 3 billion base pairs each time the DNA in a cell is replicated. Because faithful DNA replication is so important, organisms have a number of ways to ensure replication accuracy.



3.
A Gene product...
a: is literally, the product of a gene though more precisely the final, in some way useful product of a gene
b: process of creating a complementary RNA copy of a sequence of DNA
c: When all of an organism's DNA is copied. For humans, that means copying around 3 billion base pairs each time the DNA in a cell is replicated. Because faithful DNA replication is so important, organisms have a number of ways to ensure replication accuracy.



4.
RNA polymerase is...
a: an enzyme that produces RNA
b: the information in RNA is used to create a protein
c: When all of an organism's DNA is copied. For humans, that means copying around 3 billion base pairs each time the DNA in a cell is replicated.



5.
