Lecture 18. Creative self-expression: Gene expression.
Gene expression in prokaryotic cells is relatively simple compared to eukaryotic cells. This link provides an overview of the Lac Operon in bacteria: The Lac Operon.
For an in-depth view of eukaryotic gene expression, here is a site providing links to good education sites on these difficult concepts for those of you up to the challenge: Control of Gene Expression in Eukaryotes.
For additional information about tissue culture follow the links to these two sites: The Many Dimensions of Plant Tissue Culture Research and Notes on Tissue Culture.
