Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

DNA stores genetic information in a stable form that can be readily replicated. However, the expression of this genetic information requires its flow from DNA to RNA to protein, as was introduced in Chapter 5. The present chapter deals with how RNA is synthesized and spliced. We begin with transcription in Escherichia coli and focus on three questions: What are the properties of promoters (the DNA sites at which RNA transcription is initiated), and how do the promoters function? How do RNA polymerase, the DNA template, and the nascent RNA chain interact with one another? How is transcription terminated?
