central dogma of molecular biology

(redirected from The Central Dogma)

central dogma of molecular biology

The outdated principle which states that proteins are made from RNA, which in turn is made from DNA. Other permutations are found in nature; e.g., RNA viruses use a reverse transcriptase to make complementary DNA.
