Genes and The Genetic Code


A gene is a base sequence on a section of DNA that codes for a polypeptide and functional RNA molecule (rRNA and tRNA)

A gene occupies a specific position on a DNA molecule, on a chromosome called a LOCUS.

In eukaryotic DNA has regions of non-coding DNA called introns between genes and within genes, the coding regions are called exons. Prokaryotic DNA does not
