Our understanding of genetic inheritance and the function of DNA in producing the characteristics of the individual have been developing for more than 150 years.
Consider our current state of knowledge.
Link genetic characteristics to DNA structure.
Describe the steps in the process of protein synthesis.
Explain how DNA through the process of protein synthesis is responsible for the ultimate expression of the characteristics in the organism.
Describe how interference in protein synthesis can result in disruption of cellular and bodily processes?
One important class of proteins are enzymes, which control countless processes within our bodies. Considering that the building blocks of proteins are amino acids, explain how poor nutrition can disrupt many important functions in our bodies.
Introduction: what do we mean by inheritance in biology. when was DNA discovered who are the main scientists that described it, what were we thinking carrying inheritance before that.
Paragraph 1 describe chromosomes, genome, DNA and what is replication briefly
Paragraph 2: why are proteins important in your body and how to make a protein from DNA. Describe transcription and translation, genetic code.
Paragraph 3: what is mutation of the DNA, why does it happen, what can happen if there is mutation of DNA for the production of proteins , give examples
Paragraph 4 : what are enzyme connect to proteins. Why are enzyme important during replication, transcription translation. How does nutrition affect enzyme efficiency and production?
Conclusion: provide short perspective on the future of the field of genetic, are we modifying the human genome, how does modifying genes could affect the body.
