Connection
Genes
 Main
function of genes are the
production of proteins in an organisms
cells
 Proteins help determine the size, shape,
color etc. of an organism
Remember
 Chromosomes
are composed mostly of
DNA
 DNA is made of 4 nitrogen bases

Cytosine
Genes and DNA
A
gene is a section of a DNA molecule
that contains the information to code for
one specific protein
 A gene is made up of a series of nitrogen
bases in a specific order

ATGACGTAC
 Anywhere
from several hundred to millions
of these bases can form a single gene
Order of the bases
 Genes
contain codes that determine the
structure of proteins
 The order of nitrogen bases along a gene
forms a specific genetic code that
specifies what type of protein will be
produces
