Examining Gene Expression & Regulation | Live Review Session 5 | AP Biology
In this AP Daily: Live Review session for AP Biology, we will review gene expression and regulation, including nucleic acids & their role in gene expression. We look at replication, transcription, RNA processing & translation.
We’ll highlight four topics in Unit 6: Gene Expression and Regulation. We start with Topic 6.2: Replication to examine the mechanisms by which genetic information is copied for transmission between generations will be reviewed. We will discuss how to explain relationships between different characteristics of biological concepts, processes, or models represented visually in applied contexts in this topic. The session covers Topic 6.3: Transcription and RNA Processing to address the mechanisms by which genetic information flows from DNA to RNA to protein. We will also revisit how to explain relationships between different characteristics of biological concepts in this topic as well. We’ll discuss Topic 6.4: Translation to review how the phenotype of an organism is determined by its genotype will be discussed. This topic will give us an opportunity to discuss how to make predictions about the causes or effects of a change in components in a biological system. The session studies Topic 6.5: Regulation of Gene Expression and explores the types of interactions that regulate gene expression will be reviewed. We will emphasize how to make a scientific claim during the discussion of this topic.
