Table of Contents


Genes are the basic units of heredity in a living organism. They are made up of DNA, which is a long chain of nucleotides that contains the instructions for making a protein. A gene has two parts: a coding region and an untranslated region. The coding region contains information about how to make one or more proteins, while the untranslated region contains regions that regulate when and where the protein will be made. Over the lifetime, 211733 publication(s) have been published within this topic receiving 10340522 citation(s).
