Gene Expression

Gene expression is the process by which the information stored in a gene is used to produce a functional product, such as a protein.

It is a central process in the field of molecular biology and is essential for the proper functioning of all living organisms.

The genetic code stored in DNA is made up of a series of nucleotides, which are the building blocks of DNA.

These nucleotides contain information that specifies the sequence of amino acids in a protein.

When a gene is expressed, the DNA code is first transcribed into RNA, a process known as transcription.
