The process by which a gene's sequence is converted into a mature gene product or products (proteins or RNA). This includes the production of an RNA transcript as well as any processing to produce a mature RNA product or an mRNA (for protein-coding genes) and the translation of that mRNA into protein. Some protein processing events may be included when they are required to form an active form of a product from an inactive precursor form. The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of a macromolecule, any molecule of high relative molecular mass, the structure of which essentially comprises the multiple repetition of units derived, actually or conceptually, from molecules of low relative molecular mass, carried out by individual cells. Any cellular metabolic process involving nucleic acids. The cellular synthesis of DNA on a template of RNA. The synthesis of DNA from an RNA transposon intermediate. The cellular synthesis of either RNA on a template of DNA or DNA on a template of RNA.
