Abstract

This learning module provides information needed to understand how the digitally encoded information in DNA is translated into a functional protein that can be used for biomedical applications.  Activities delve deeper into protein structure and function as well as gene transcription.

This learning module contains of the following:

  • Learning Module Map (outline for instructors)
  • Pre-test:  Knowledge Probe (KP)
  • Reading:  DNA to Protein Overview
  • Presentation:  DNA to Protein Overview (pptx)
  • Activity:  Protein Structure and Function
  • Activity:  Gene Transcription
  • Assessment
