  • The term Central Dogma describes the universal flow of genetic information: DNA to RNA to protein. In this chapter, we will explore the basic mechanisms of transcription and translation. We will also examine mutation to observe that mutations in DNA affect the structure and function of proteins because of this flow of information. Throughout genetics, we will also find "exceptions" to this Central Dogma.
