This is a 2-page review of Point and Frameshift mutations. I have designed this worksheet so that students identify 5 different types of mutations by using the DNA strand first and then coming up with the corresponding mutated mRNA and Amino Acid strands. Students are then asked to identify the type of mutation and whether or not a physiological mutation would occur.
Following their own application, I have 5 analysis questions to help students examine and analyze what they know about mutations.
Finally, I have students find the mRNA and amino acid sequence for a normal hemoglobin gene and a hemoglobin gene that has undergone the Sickle Cell Anemia mutation.
A key is attached.
