Topics covered by this unit include:
- History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick, Chargaff, Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins.
- DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another, nitrogen bases.
- Chargaff’s Rules and the X-Ray evidence by Rosalind Franklin
- The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information.
- Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes.
- Replication of DNA: Drawings, steps in replication, DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins or replication, replication forks, complementary strands, helicase.
- Proofreading and repairing DNA: the role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.
- The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids.
- RNA: Differences between DNA and RNA, the functions of RNA, the three types of RNA (mRNA, tRNA, rRNA).
- Transcription: Purpose of transcription, steps to transcription, promoter, terminator, RNA polymerase.
- RNA processing and editing, introns, exons.
- Understanding the genetic code, how codons translate into amino acids, start codons, stop codons, reading a table of codons.
- Translation: protein synthesis, ribosomes, steps in translation, the role of mRNA and the role of tRNA, structure of tRNA and its ability to transport amino acids, reading and deciphering the code.
- Practice Problem: Given a DNA sequence, students will figure out the corresponding mRNA codon sequence, the tRNA anticodon sequence, and the amino acid sequence.
- Ribosome structure: large subunit, small subunit, RNA binding sites, the entry and exit of tRNA to build a polypeptide, start codons, stop codons.
- Mutations: definition of mutation, gene mutations, chromosome mutations, point mutations, base substitutions, base insertions or deletions, silent mutations, frameshift mutations, the importance of mutations in natural selection.
