You ask initially about the “sense” and “antisense” strands of DNA. These terms are explained in the Wikipedia reference entitled ‘Sense strand’. This states what you appear to be already aware of, that: “The sense strand is the strand of DNA that has the same sequence as the mRNA, which takes the antisense strand as its template during transcription…” ...

I would add this as a comment to your question but do not have enough reputation. A simple look at Wikipedia (which is a very good source for general questions like these) would have provided you with an answer. I just did this to see how long it would take if I did not know the answer. It was about 20-30 seconds. Protein synthesis: Transcription In ...

There are three "omic" definitions that might help you. The DNA is the long term storage of the information. You're probably familiar with this concept, and the study of this type of information is genomics. One of the major functions of DNA is it's use as the blueprint for the production of proteins. Proteins carry out all sorts of structural and ...

One way of examining this is by looking at the transcriptome as a whole before and after the introduction of the chemical. I would use microarray or next generation sequencing RNA-seq technology to look on the expression level of all the genes after the introduction of the chemical, some inert control and no treatment control. Then, you can calculate the ...
