Product Description
This product contains 4 different homework assignments that you can use as you are teaching a unit on DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis. I have divided the information into the following four assignments:

Homework #1: The Basics of DNA

Homework #2: DNA Replication

Homework #3: RNA and Transcription

Homework #4: Protein Synthesis and Translation

Please Note: These homework assignments are included in complete unit plan bundle which can be viewed at this link: DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis: Complete Unit Plan of 20 products


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

Each of these assignments is available for separate purchase, but the bundle is offered at a discount.

This is what is covered on each assignment:
Homework #1: DNA Basics (Total of 42 questions)

1. Genes must be able to do what three things?
2. Nucleotides: sugars, phosphates, nitrogen bases
3. The five nitrogen bases
4. Purines and pyrimidines
5. Structure of the DNA molecule
6. Chargaffs rules
7. Historical information: Rosalind Franklin, James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins
8. Base pairing rules and complimentary bases
9. Bonding in the DNA molecule
10. Packing of a large amount of DNA in the small space of the nucleus

Homework #2: DNA Replication (Total of 39 questions)
1. Replication
2. Steps of replication
3. Origins of replication and replication forks
4. Enzymes: Helicases and DNA polymerases
5. DNA proofreading
6. Repairing damage to DNA: Enzymes nucleases, DNA polymerases, ligases.

Homework #3: RNA and Transcription (Total of 37 questions)
1. The genetic code: codons, amino acids, gene expression, codon triplets specify amino acids, protein building instructions.
2. The differences between DNA and RNA
3. The three type of RNA and the function of each type.
4. Transcription: definition, purpose, result, steps in transcription
5. RNA processing and editing: why RNA must be modified, introns, exons

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.

Also included is a chart of all 64 codons and the amino acids they code for.

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