DNA Sequencing

Post by kross2121 » Wed Nov 05, 2008 12:12 am

Hi! I am looking for help with this question for my micro bio class. Thanks! :D

Using the following antisense DNA sequence, write the sequence of:

A. the sense DNA sequence
B. the mRNA sequence that would be created during its transcription
C. the sequence of amino acids in the peptide that would be made from the mRNA

you're funny. no one is going to do your homework for free, especially since your question is incomplete.

A- complementary of your sequence. Think of orientation
B- give a thought about the meaning of sense and antisense... And then copy keeping in minds the difference in nucleotides between RNA and DNA
C- Use a translation table, and think about the best beginning point for your translation
