Phenotypic Expression

Abstract

The phenotypic expression of DNA begins with transcription. The genetic information which is thus passed on to mRNA is then translated into amino acid sequences. A large number of proteins result from this process. These proteins are either components of cellular structures or have catalytic or regulatory functions in cell metabolism.
