One of the most important things to remember from this week is what a gene is. In simplest terms, a gene has traditionally been defined as a DNA segment with protein coding information. At the same time we can add much more to this narrow definition and broaden it to include the regulatory functions that some proteins have themselves.
The purpose of this discussion board is meant for you to share any interesting things that you discovered or to demystify any difficulties that you may have about genes, genetics, chromosomes or any other related item. Feel free to share your thoughts in an open ended but informed way! For your contribution you will receive participation points.
