PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Translation and Protein Synthesis Homework Assignment and Study Guide

Suitable for biology and life science students in grades 8-12.


This product contains 1 of 4 different homework assignments that I use when teaching a unit on DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis.

I have divided the information into the following four assignments:
Homework #1: DNA: The Basics
Homework #2: DNA Replication
Homework #3: RNA and Transcription
Homework #4: Translation and Protein Synthesis

This listing is for the fourth assignment only: Protein Synthesis and Translation. You can buy all 4 assignments bundled together by clicking on this link: Bundle of 4 DNA and RNA homework assignments

PLEASE NOTE: This PowerPoint is also included in a bundled unit plan containing 20 different products on DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis. You can view the bundled unit plan by clicking here: DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis Complete Unit Plan.


This assignment was written for my Biology I class. It covers the concepts found in any Biology I text. This homework assignment contains questions of varying formats: Compare and contrast terms, fill in the blank, multiple choice, short answer, and true/false.

This is what is covered on this assignment:
Homework #4: Translation and Protein Synthesis (Total of 50 questions)

1. The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids, gene expression, codon triplets specify amino acids, protein building instructions.
2. Start and stop codons.
3. 64 possible codon combinations and the amino acids they code for.
4. Translation: Definition, purpose of translation, steps in translation.
5. The role of tRNA in translation.
6. Codons and Anticodons.
7. The importance of reading the codons in the correct order.
8. Sample Problem: Given the sequence on the DNA molecule, students will give the mRNA codon sequence, the tRNA anticodon sequence, and the order of amino acids for coded for.
9. Structure of the ribosome: large and small subunits, mRNA binding site, three binding sites for tRNA.
10. Mutations: Definition, gene mutations, chromosome mutations, point mutations, frameshift mutations, substitutions, deletions, insertions, the importance of mutations in natural selection.

My materials are easily adaptable. You can easily add or delete questions. You will receive both a pdf and a Word document version of all assignments.

All answers are included.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
