proof-reading is called 3'-5' exonuclease activity
toposiomerases fixes suppercoiling
RNA pol I makes rRNA
proteins are made... in the cytoplasm
RNA pol II makes mRNA
three differences bw DNA and RNA DNA uses deoxyribose instead of ribose; DNA uses thymine instead of uracil; DNA is double stranded while RNA is usually single
RNA pol III makes tRNA
transformation the genetic alteration of a cell resulting from the uptake, genomic incorporation, and expression of foreign genetic material inheritable genetic combo
