Dr. Jason Tresser explains the process that cells use to adjust genomic information at the RNA level, giving special attention to splicing. He goes on to discuss the process of turning RNA informat...
September 12, 2012
Dr. Jason Tresser explains the process of DNA replication that occurs in a cell. He discusses various polymerase proteins and how each of them contribute to the replication process. Dr. Tresser fir...

Dr. Jason Tresser explains the process cells use to create mRNA, called transcription. He discusses the various proteins involved in the process and the various information groups that are strung t...
December 7, 2012
Dr. Jason Tresser explains the developmental processes of embryos as they differentiate into various types of cells. He explains the general mechanisms that surround this process and how the proces...
