What is the difference between transcription and translation?

1 year ago

Transcription is the name given to the formation of DNA molecules from an open DNA chain used as a template. Translation is the making of polypeptides (amino acids bound in sequence) and thus of proteins based on information encoded in the mRNA molecule.

In eukaryotic cells transcription occurs in the nucleus and translation occurs in ribosomes. Transcription precedes translation.
