Title: DNA to Protein Synthesis
Url: http://molit.concord.org/database/activities/245.html
Publisher: Concord Consortium
Description: In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students "work with a model that shows the entire process from gene transcription and translation, through protein folding of the newly synthesized protein." The activity itself is a java-based interactive resource built upon the free, open source Molecular Workbench software. In the activity, students are allowed to explore at their own pace in a digital environment full of demonstrations, illustrations, and models they can manipulate. The content of the module is divided into five sections: The DNA Code, The Architecture of DNA, Modeling a 3D Helix in 2D Space, Transcription: Copying a Gene to mRNA, Translation: The Process of Assembling a Protein, and a summary with review questions. In addition to the activity, visitors will find an overview of the activity, a test and rubric, central concepts, textbook references, and correlation to AAAS and NSES standards.
