Molecular biology of gene function
How is genetic information expressed so it affects an organism's structure and function?
  • Describe how expansion or retraction of triplet repeats can alter gene function and create a phenotype.
  • Explain how the genetic code relates transcription to translation
  • Discuss how various factors might influence the relationship between genotype and phenotype (e.g. incomplete penetrance, variable expressivity, and sex-limited phenotype).
  • Explain how abnormalities in gene dosage can affect phenotype.
