Explain the processes and functions of DNAs and Genes thoroughly??
Asked by | 27th Dec, 2012, 11:56: PM
DNA stores an organism's genetic information and controls the production of proteins and is thus responsible for the biochemistry of an organism. The actual genetic coding is due to the sequence of bases on the DNA strand. When a cell divides the double stranded DNA is unzipped, and new DNA strands form using the single strands from the original DNA as templates thus replicating the sequence of DNA bases.
A gene is a length of DNA that codes for a specific protein. Genes are the basic unit of genetics.
