This presentation is a great introduction to DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis. Middle and high school students can learn about the scientific experiments that led to the discovery of DNA, as well as the detailed processes of DNA replication, transcription, and translation.
This product includes a 36-slide EDITABLE PowerPoint presentation with full-color pictures and links to videos for further explanation of these difficult concepts.
-Scientists involved in the discovery of DNA: Griffith, Avery, Hershey & Chase, Chargaff, Franklin, Watson & Crick, Meselson & Stahl
-Structure of DNA: nucleotides, base pairing, double helix structure, chromosomes
-DNA Replication: Semi-conservation, replication process including DNA helicase & polymerase
-RNA: structure, 3 types of RNA, transcription process, introns & exons, codons
-Process of Translation
