Transcription and Translation Tool

Converts sequences from DNA to RNA and from this to protein.

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid

  • permanent copy of the genetic information
  • uses"T" rather than "U"
  • without 2' OH group
  • more stable than RNA
  • lower error rate during replication than RNA

DNA sequence:    

RNA (ribonucleic acid

  • messenger RNA (mRNA) is a temporary copy of the sequence of the gene that codes for the protein

RNA sequence:    

detect start codon
detect stop codon


  • consists on amino acids linked by amide bonds ("peptide bonds")
  • most enzymes and many structural components in cells are proteins

protein sequence:
