Human DNA is a lecture as part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on human DNA at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, and in the {{humanities resources}} or {{gene project}} template. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

Suggestion: Have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

Quiz[edit | edit source]


1 Complete the text:

A short or

realization of a certain

or idea to

a treament's feasibility in human DNA is called a proof of

3 DNA contains genes, which hold the instructions for life. But, these take up only about 2 percent of the


4 True or False, People have about 20,000 genes, but the vast majority of DNA lies outside of genes.


5 Which of the following is a protein encoding characteristic of human DNA?

a segment of DNA that carries genetic information such as a sequence of amino acids for a protein
at least three-quarters of the genome is involved in making RNA
fully 98% of the human genome is noncoding DNA
over 50% of human DNA consists of non-coding repetitive sequences
an abundant form of noncoding DNA in humans ia pseudogenes

6 True or False, A control group may be used in human DNA to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


7 Which of the following are phenomena associated with the genotype?

at least three-quarters of the genome is involved in making RNA

Hypotheses[edit | edit source]

  1. That portion of human DNA that constitutes humans may be less than 50 %.
  2. Each ancestor, separate subspecies, species, or genus is in our genome in some percentage.
