Turn your class into a group of detectives working to decode and build DNA structures without causing mutations. In the process, they'll learn about protein synthesis and the ways in which nucleotides match up to create amino acids.
In what part of the nucleus of the cell does the process of protein synthesis begin?
What are the four nucleotides that comprise DNA?
Which nucleotide is replaced—and which nucleotide replaces it—when DNA becomes RNA?
Write a paragraph summarizing the major steps in the process of protein synthesis. Include the terms: DNA; bases; transcription; mRNA; translation; codons; anticodons; ribosomes; polypeptide; amino acids
