This activity was designed to help my students visualize the impact of DNA mutations on the created DNA molecules. Students receive a letter from Dr. Oscar Groucho concerning some of his patients that have trouble breathing. He provides the students with information about several disorders concerning the same "gene". Students compare the DNA of each patient to the "normal DNA" and determine the impact on the protein. If Amino Acid folding kits are available, students can fold each patient's sequence to visualize the changes to the protein. My students love this activity and I hope yours will too.
