    Possible Modifications of Central Dogma of molecular Biology Introduction The central dogma of molecular biology is describes the transfer of genetic information within a biological system and was first stated by Francis Crick in 1956. The central dogma is the flow of genetic information as ‘’DNA makes the RNA and RNA makes the protein.’’All biological cells with few exceptions in some follow this rule. This flow takes place through three fundamental processes: replication, transcription and translation. Central Dogma theory was modified when it was found that in some cases RNA carry the genetic information for DNA. The dogma is basically the transfer of sequenced information between information carrying biopolymers. There are three main classes of such biopolymers: DNA, RNA and protein. This transfer is of three types: general transfers (normally occurs in all cells), special transfers (in viruses), and unknown transfers (never takes place). The general transfers is the normal transfer of biological information catagories in three types: DNA can be copied to DNA (DNA replication), DNA information transcribed into mRNA (transcription), and proteins can be synthesized from mRNA as a template (translation). There are some modifications in central dogma of molecular biology. This review discusses the possible modifications of central dogma of molecular biology.…

    Taking Honors Biology in freshman year sparked a passion for biomedical sciences which has stuck with me over the past four years. This was enhanced by a Human Anatomy and Physiology course I took in 11th grade, where we learned about the how various human systems function. After taking this class, I decided to major in molecular biology, as I had only scratched the surface of the workings and biochemical interactions of cells, and was eager to continue learning. However, after a great work…

    BIOL101 - Cellular and Molecular Biology Biotechnology and Genetic Diversity Essay: Biotechnology is defined as the exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc (Oxford University Press [2010], Oxford Dictionary of English, Oxford; UK, 2010). The ability of a species to survive is a product of the individual species ability to adapt to its environment, as well as the…

    Many buildings around Iowa State Campus have very unique designs. Each design in each building have very deep meanings to understand the history and purpose of the building. One of the buildings that stood out was from an artist named Andrew Leicester who created the G-Nome on the Molecular Biology Building in 1992 and many other artifacts as part of the G-Nome Project. The G-Nome comes from two different words: Gnome (a dwarf-like creature that usually guards precious treasure) and genome (a…

    processes that transfers the genetic code from DNA via mRNA to finally form the functional product (finished proteins) together forms the central dogma of modern molecular biology. Thus, the genetic code is the basis of the central dogma of molecular biology. Central dogma is nothing but the flow of genetic information in all living cells including human cells from DNA to RNA to proteins. The central dogma There are three classes of sequential biopolymers that encode information: DNA, RNA, and…

    Purification and Quantitation of DNA and Plasmid Structure Labs 3 and 4 Biology 453 Clayton Pedigo September 14 and 21, 2016 Introduction: In this report, there are two labs being discussed. The first lab being lab 3 (purification and quantitation of plasmid DNA) involved lysing bacterial E.coli cells and retrieving the plasmid particles. The purpose of the second lab, lab 4 (plasmid DNA structure), was to use the concentrated DNA from lab 3 and compare…

    ranging from biology and biochemistry to microbiology and medicine. Column chromatography is also referred to as gel filtration or size exclusion chromatography among many other terminologies and it is used to separate molecules solely based on their size. The concept behind this technique is quite simple and effective to determine the molecular weight of some molecules, specifically proteins, and to separate the components of a mixture. The procedure…

    at the Sackler School in collaboration with The Jackson laboratory would best help me achieve my goals. While completing an undergraduate degree in cellular and molecular biology at the University of Rhode Island, I have worked in the laboratory of Dr. Niall Howlett investigating the biochemical properties of Fanconi anemia, an inherited bone marrow failure disorder resulting from a defect in a specific DNA repair pathway. I currently investigate the interplay between epigenetic markers and the…
