Review Activity: Draw a Snork

Here is an activity that will help you review the information on transcribing DNA to mRNA and translating mRNA to an Amino Acid sequence.

Do this on a separate piece of paper. Make sure you do each step of the activity and check your work to make sure there are no errors.

Protein Synthesis

Here is some information on Protein Synthesis. Use the reading, videos, and information below to help you understand the following about protein synthesis. You will need to be able to do this for the next quiz.

  • Describe the steps and/or structures in the process where genes sequences are copied to produce proteins.
  • Predict the complementary strand of mRNA give a sequence of DNA
  • Describe the relationship between DNA, chromosomes, genes, amino acids, proteins, and traits.
  • Describe that the sequences of the bases (ATGC) in DNA specifies what protein to make.

Please vist and take notes for at least two of the sources below. Make sure that you are taking notes on all of what is being said and shown. Write down questions that you have to ask later.

1. Video: Transcription
2. Video: Protein Synthesis
3. Video: Protein Synthesis (Amoeba Sisters)
4. Diffen: Transcription vs Translation
5. PowerPoint: Protein Synthesis

Here is a pre-quiz that you need to take before the end of today. I will get your score, but it will not be entered into the grade book. You may take it twice.
