In episodes 2, 3 and 4 of this podcast, we've learned that DNA is determined to be the molecule of inheritance, as well as how its structure is determined. What DNA Dan hasn't yet discussed is what DNA actually does. Or, if DNA is the so called "code of life," how is its code being read? And how is that information put into action? That brings us to the central dogma of molecular biology.
In this episode, DNA Dan discusses the "central dogma of molecular biology," information theory of English physicist, Francis Crick in the 1950s, the early principles he was trying to convey, and then brings us up to speed on what we know about the information flow of DNA, RNA and protein biological processes, today.
Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine. Dan discusses health and ancestry genetic testing, forensic genetics, genetics and mental health, common myths about genetics, and more.
DNA Dan, SCU Professor of Genomics, Dan Handley, M.S., Ph.D., shares his knowledge from his over 30 years of experience in the world of advanced genomics research and biotechnology.
