    The content in a DNA and RNA unit can be overwhelming. Students must master nucleotides, codons, anticodons, amino acids, DNA replication, RNA transcription, and protein synthesis at the ribosomes. Whew, that's a lot! Quality homework questions are hard to find, and there are never enough included in the textbook. These homework worksheets will provide your students with the practice and reinforcement they need to master the concepts of DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis. Both PRINTABLE and DIGITAL versions of all worksheets are included. All of the worksheets are editable. Select only the questions you feel are right for your students.

    This homework bundle contains 4 different 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:

    Both printable and digital versions of this resource are included. The student handouts can be printed or used in the paperless digital format in your Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar. This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, 1:1 schools, or for distance learning.

    What is included in your download folder?

    • Printable and Editable Homework Assignments: 18 student pages containing over 180 questions.
    • Digital paperless versions (not editable) for use in Google Drive, Google Classroom, and/or Microsoft OneDrive
    • Teacher Guide and Answer Key
    • Teacher Guide for Google Apps Versions

    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.

    This is what is covered on each assignment:

    Homework #1: DNA Basics (Total of 39 questions)

    • 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, sugars, phosphates, and 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.
    • The structure of the DNA molecule
    • Base pairing rules and complementary bases.
    • Chemical bonding in the DNA molecule.
    • Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes.

    Homework #2: DNA Replication (Total of 43 questions)

    • Replication of DNA: Definition of replication, purpose of replication, steps in replication.
    • Base-pairing rules
    • The Mechanisms of Replication: DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins or replication, replication forks, complementary strands, helicase.
    • Proofreading and repairing DNA: The role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.

    Homework #3: RNA and Transcription (Total of 56 questions)

    • The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids, proteins.
    • 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.

    Homework #4: Translation and Protein Synthesis:

    • 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.

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