Translation and Protein Synthesis: A short quiz to check for understanding leading up to the unit test.
Suitable for biology and life science students in grades 8-12.
This product contains 1 of 3 different quizzes that I use when teaching a unit on DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis.
I have divided the information into the following three quizzes:
Quiz #1: DNA and Replication
Quiz #2: RNA and Transcription
Quiz #3: Translation and Protein Synthesis
This listing is for the third quiz only: Translation and Protein Synthesis. You can buy all 3 quizzes bundled together by clicking on this link: DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis Quiz Bundle
PLEASE NOTE: This quiz 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 quiz was written for my Biology I class. It covers the concepts found in any Biology I text. The question format is fill in the blank and short answer. I have included a short preview of the quiz in my free preview download.
Included on this quiz:
Quiz #3: Translation and Protein Synthesis (36 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.
Also included is a chart of amino acids and the 64 codon combinations.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
