This powerpoint presentation covers Topic 3.5 in the IB Biology curriculum. Specifically, it covers the basics of the transcription and translation processes. See learning objectives below.
Each slide is labelled with the specific learning objective and animation/video links are provided in the slide notes. The slides are formatted to print well for handouts or revision and I can provide a pdf version upon request.
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
**IB Biology Learning Objectives:
3.5.1 – Compare the structure of RNA and DNA.
3.5.2 – Outline DNA transcription in terms of the formation of an RNA strand complementary to the DNA strand by RNA polymerase
3.5.3 – Describe the genetic code in terms of codons composed of triplets of bases.
3.5.4 – Explain the process of translation leading to polypeptide formation.
3.5.5 – Discuss the relationship between one gene and one polypeptide
