The significant difference between transcription and translation is that transcription refers to the process of creating an mRNA molecule for the DNA of a gene. In contrast, a translation relates to the operation of synthesizing an amino acid sequence from the transcribed mRNA molecule. Transcription is the first step in gene expression.

It is the process of producing an mRNA molecule from a DNA template. Transcription occurs inside the nucleus of eukaryotes. It is an enzyme that facilitates this development. Among the two strands of DNA, one operates as the coding sequence, while the other is the non-coding sequence. The translation is the next step of gene expression.

It is the complex process of converting the mRNA molecule into an amino acid cycle of a protein. It transpires in the cell organelle called ribosomes, appearing in the cytoplasm of the cell. The hidden genetic information in the mRNA molecule is the organization of the amino acid structure of the protein that programs by the gene. Accordingly, the precise amino acid sequence is created from the mRNA molecule during the translation process.

Biology is a complex field, but it helps us understand the genetic deposition that each person has. There are two main processes that occur in biology, which are transcription and translation. Transcription involves genetic information that the DNA has been copied into the mRNA, which stands for messenger RNA. This process occurs in the nucleus and can be simplified by the formula DNA -> mRNA. The translation is a process that occurs after transcription. It is the process of the coded information that the mRNA has been used to create protein. This happens in the ribosome and is simplified in mRNA -> protein.
