|MadSci Network: Genetics|
In my science class we are studying genetics, and there is one question that no one seems to be able to answer. We know that there are dominant and recessive traits, but we don't know how the mRNA decides which one it should make. My teachers came up with two possibilities. The first one is that the DNA decides which trait is going to be made before the RNA enters the picture. The second one is that the RNA makes both dominant and recessive traits, and the finished proteins decide which one is going to show up in the phenotype. My class and I would greatly appreciate any information you could give us on this subject. Thank you. Meghan Cermitt13@aol.com
