• Overview: 
    DNA, proteins, enzymes. These are the heart of what molecular biology is, understanding the process of making proteins at the molecular level. It explains how DNA is replicated and how proteins are created through transcription and translation.

    Learning Target Breakdown:
    BIO 2.0: Macromolecules drive all reactions in organisms towards reproduction and passing on their genetics to offspring.
     

    BIO 2.1: Compare and contrast the roles and functions of DNA replication and protein synthesis

     

    BIO 2.2: Explain the roles and functions of all enzymes involved in DNA replication and protein synthesis

     

    BIO 2.3: Predict genomic sequences resulting from replication and protein synthesis

     

    BIO 2.4: Differentiate the individual steps within DNA replication and protein synthesis

     
    BIO 2.5: Create models that display the different types of DNA mutations
