Homework Due: None
Homework Assigned: UP p.99-110 due tomorrow, and EC-Lab #37 due thursday.

In Class:
We did a DNA model activity using a pack of tubes and connecters to create strands of DNA, replicate it, then put it through protein synthesis. The purpose of this activity was to learn more about translation. Here is a link to short clip on youtube, that explains translation.

NOTE: In the beginning of this clip it talks about Poly-A tails and methylated caps, you DO NOT need to know these, we did not cover these in class.

Next Scribe: Jex, you do not need to post until next tuesday

  1. I think you might want to add some basic outline or bullet points in addition to the video so that you can see the animation and words in front of you. The video really helped me understand translation though.
