DNA and the Central Tenets of Molecular Biology


  • What is DNA?
  • Where is DNA found in the cell?
  • What are the four nucleotide bases of DNA?
  • What is base-pairing?
  • What are the basics of DNA replication?
  • What is a codon?
  • What is a gene?
  • How does DNA store genetic information?
  • How is the genetic information in DNA transcribed into messenger RNA and then translated into proteins?
  • Epigenetics- how does DNA methylation, histone acetylation and chromosome organization impact gene expression?
  • Evolution- what is natural selection? What is descent with modification?
