[MUSIC PLAYING] [MUSIC PLAYING] Blood transfusions have been around since the 1700s. But for the first 200 years or so, they were pretty risky, and more often than not, ended up killing rather curing the patient. That all changed in 1901 with the discovery of blood groups– an inherent, inherited characteristic of blood. Nicole Thornton […]
A Level Biology: Genes and Inheritance 11 – Translation Hi! Welcome to the 11th video on the series about Genes. Today, we are going to be looking at Translation. At the end of last time, we finished off looking at transcription. So the end-product of transcription is this single-stranded piece of genetic material called mRNA […]
A Level Biology: Genes and Inheritance 6 – Genetic Questions Welcome to the sixth video about Genes. Today, we are going to be looking at Genetic questions. Today, we are going to look at how you would answer a standard genetic question. The first part of this question: If there is a single gene that […]
Okay, Hussein, take it away. What would you like to discuss? Basically, DNA, what does DNA stand for? Okay, cool. DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. So deoxyribo that’s the D part, nucleic is the N, and Acid is the A. Okay. And what happens if there is a tiny error in your DNA which doesn’t […]
Hi, welcome back to the series about the colors and patterns of Ragdoll cats. In the previous episode I told you what the individual patterns look like. This time I will talk about colors and the genes responsible for them. In this film, as well as in the entire genetic series, I will make use […]
Genes exist in alternate forms called alleles. For example, the gene that determines eyebrow shape has two alleles—one codes for bushy eyebrows and the other fine eyebrows.

To make a particular protein in the cell the relevant gene is first switched on in the DNA. A working copy of the gene called messenger RNA is made. This copying process is called transcription. Next the information in the messenger RNA is acted upon to produce a protein.
