Sam Yeaman, a professor at the University of Calgary and one of our DNA DAY experts, explains how information is coded in DNA.
On behalf of the Grade 12 Bio classes at Adam Scott, thank you for your time Sam! Since submitting our question, the class had discussed the concepts of gene sequences, base pairs and codons. However, we did find it interesting to learn about how influential the promoter region of the gene was and the fact that the physical packaging of chromosomes in the nucleus can have an affect on how genes are expressed. It is definitely an exciting time to be a scientist!
