Lesson 7: Coding for Proteins
                 Practice Test
 
Question 1:
1.How many DNA base pairs are needed to encode a protein that is 20 amino acids long?
  A.20
  B.40
  C.60
  D.80
  E.More than 100
Question 2:
The process of using mRNA as a template to produce a protein is known as
  A.Transcription
  B.Translation
  C.Translocation
   D.Intron
Question 3:
The function of proteins is
  A.To build cellular structures
  B.To act as hormones
  C.To mediate chemical conversions     
  D.All of the above
Question 4:
4.The variation seen in a complex trait such as height
  A.Is not due to variations in             genetic make-up
  B.Is partly explained by DNA                  sequence variations in several
            different genes
  C.Can be entirely explained by
            variations in growth hormone genes
  D.Is explained by variation in amounts
            of structural proteins produced in
            different people
Question 5:
Variations in the DNA sequences of intergenic regions do not affect the sequence of amino acids in proteins.
  A.True
  B.False
Question 6:
If all the exome sequence variation present in an individual were determined, most of the individual's disease risks would be revealed.
  A.True
  B.False
