Molecular Biology Quiz: DNA Transcription, Translation, Replication - Quiz

Test your knowledge with this molecular biology quiz. Molecular Biology is known as the field of biology that studies the composition, structure as well as interactions of cellular molecules. Transcription is the first step of gene expression, where the messenger RNA is decoded in a ribosome to produce polypeptide, which later folds into an active protein and performs its functions in the cell. We tried to understand the structure, function, and processes of DNA and RNA in the cell. See how much you understand about it by taking this quiz.


Questions and Answers
