Biology – Genetics (DNA)
When you look inside a cell, then inside the nucleus, keep zooming in and you’ll see the organisms DNA – the blueprint of life. It’s crucial to have a good understanding of the fine structure of DNA (and of another similar molecule called RNA) before progressing through the rest of genetics. Next, we look at how cells are constantly copying their DNA and then dividing in two, themselves. After this we look at how cells read the genetic code inside the DNA and use this code to manufacture proteins – and how we can use this information to our advantage to make proteins in the lab or in the factory.
