Human RNA is a lecture and an article as part of the gene transcription series.

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

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, and in the {{gene project}} resources 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.

A suggestion is to 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!

A proof-of-concept structure, including a control group, consists of , procedures, findings, and .

2 True or False, The purpose of a treatment group for human RAN is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


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, Pure human RNA involves no doing apart from itself.


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

at least three-quarters of the genome is involved in making RNA
only about 1.5% of the human genome consists of protein-coding exons
the genetic information in a genome is held within genes
mediator dependence
core promoter

8 True or False, The human genome contains an average of 8.4 introns/gene (139,418 in the genome).


9 Complete the text:

A short or realization of a certain or idea to a treament's feasibility regarding human RNA is called a proof of .

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


11 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea for human RNA versus a control group is feasible is called a


12 True or False, A dominant group associated with human RNA differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.


13 True or False, RNA is produced from DNA by replacing thymine by adenine.

  1. With so much DNA devoted to producing RNA there should be a lot more types of RNAs.
