Question about DNA -directed RNA synthesis in E. Coli

Post by dstarks » Tue Oct 23, 2007 5:23 pm

I have a quick question...

On my biochem homework, the professor asks us to describe at least four evetns that occur during DNA directed RNA synthesis in E. Coli and to list the events in order.

Does anyopne know what is meant by DNA directed RNA synthesis or any links to information about it? If anyone has any comments or inputs about DNA directed RNA synthesis, please post away!

Thanks!

dna directed rna synthesis = transcription

seems a strange way of describing normal transcription.
