About This Quiz & Worksheet

These assessment tools can help gauge your understanding of RNA processing in a eukaryotic cell. The quiz addresses several topics, including ''junk DNA'' and mRNA.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

You'll be test on the following topics:

  • Structures that assist with RNA splicing
  • Parts of DNA originally thought of as ''junk DNA''
  • Part of a gene that codes for proteins
  • Single nucleotide that makes up the 5' cap
  • Term for an mRNA molecule before it's finished with RNA processing

Skills Practiced

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related biology lesson
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about RNA processing in a different light
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding coding for proteins and interpret it correctly
