What term refers to gene function at the level of traits or at the molecular level? gene expression Beadle and Tatum hypothesized that genes carry the information to make specific enzymes.

Intro to gene expression (central dogma)
Google Classroom How genes in DNA can provide instructions for proteins. The central dogma of molecular biology: DNA → RNA → protein. Overview: Gene expression DNA is the genetic material of all organisms on Earth.
Gene expression is the process by which the information encoded in a gene is turned into a function. This mostly occurs via the transcription of RNA molecules that code for proteins or non-coding RNA molecules that serve other functions. Gene expression be thought of as an “on/off switch” to control when and where RNA molecules and proteins.
The process of gene expression is used by all known life—eukaryotes (including multicellular organisms), prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea), and utilized by viruses—to generate the macromolecular machinery for life. In genetics, gene expression is the most fundamental level at which the genotype gives rise to the phenotype, i.e. observable.
Gene Ontology overview
Gene Ontology overview An ontology is a formal representation of a body of knowledge within a given domain. Ontologies usually consist of a set of classes (or terms or concepts) with relations that operate between them. The Gene Ontology (GO) describes our knowledge of the biological domain with respect to three aspects:.
