I am having problems understaning how to convert the following DNA sequence into its RNA equivalent and then using the genetic code, converting that RNA sequence into the amino acid sequence.
5'-TACTTCTTCAAGACT-3'

How do you determine what information is contained in the code?

Hi,

DNA is made up of four nucleotides that get there letter names from the nitrogenous base they have (A is adenine, T for thymine, G for guanine, and C for cytosine). DNA holds the instructions for making certain proteins, but DNA does not leave the nucleus, so a copy of the instructions (the gene) must be made to be sent out into the ...
