How is DNA decoded to make proteins? How do mutations in DNA benefit or disadvantage organisms?
In this activity, students must carefully follow instructions to construct an adorable beetle made from pipecleaners. By decoding 2D information and translating it into a 3D form, this activity helps students to model the biological process of protein synthesis.
- Processing and analyzing data information
- Questioning and predicting
- Mutation and its impact on evolution
- Effects of DNA mutations
- Process of protein synthesis
