1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Is transcription a subprocess of translation in protein synthesis? 3. The attempt at a solution I know that transcripition consists of four processes 1. activation 2. initiatian 3. elongenation 4. termination I know that protein synthesis consists the following steps. First, you have a gene that is three bases in the ribosome. The strand of three bases forms an amino acid. Subsequently, many single amino acids form an amino acid chain. The chain forms a protein and subsequently a protein chain. I am not sure where the boundary between translation and transcription is if transcription is not a subprocess of translation.
