When finished, select Reading the Code at the bottom of the window.
Next, select Putting it Together at the top of the window.
You may then watch the tutorial video clip or choose Interactive or Translation.
Afterward, complete the assignment below:
Use an mRNA Codon/Amino Acid chart to complete the following columns. Use the information given to work forward or backward to determine left and right sides of the DNA that would match the mRNA that would match the tRNA that would carry the amino acid. Remember that a mRNA code chart determines which amino acid is specified. You may download a printable version of the columns to be completed.
The RNA Codons
The Second Nucleotide
When you have completed the assignment, submit it to the DROPBOX entitled DNA to Amino Acids.
