Question:

How would you rewrite the following sentences to be more concise? I like dogs. Dogs are my favorite. Dogs that are yellow are especially my favorite. I do not like cats. Cats are not nice. Dogs are nice.

Emily E.
Answer:

I would rewrite the sentences as such: I like dogs, especially yellow dogs; they are my favorite! I do not like cats, they are not as nice. Being concise is an essential part of technical writing, and even in non-technical writing helps your reader understand what you are writing.

Question:

What is the central dogma of biology, and which levels are regulated?

Emily E.
Answer:

The central dogma of biology is: DNA --(transcription)--> RNA --(translation)--> protein Every level of this process is regulated! DNA expression (aka, whether or not a gene is transcribed) is regulated by molecular markers on the DNA as well as structure. RNA translation into protein is also regulated through many processes that make sure misshapen proteins are not made, as well as regulating how much of the protein is made. Proteins are also regulated through processes like ubiquitination that tell the cell to destroy the protein.

What are the five elements of a fictional story?

Emily E.
Answer:

The five elements of a fictional story are: plot, setting, characters, theme, and perspective. All of these are made up of further sub-elements: for example, the plot progresses from the exposition to rising action, peaking in the climax, and then falling action that concludes with a resolution of the story.
