__________ describes how a cell makes a protein from the protein coding sequence of a gene.
A. Transcription
B. Gene expression
C. Translation
D. Gene phrasing

i'm confused between A and C

  • Science -

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "Transcription and translation" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see

  • Science -

    Translation is the process of where the RNA transcript is TRANSLATED into a protein. Whereas Transcription is the process in where DNA TRANSCRIBED into mRNA. The best answer choice is C
