For this project students will work in groups and will receive a DNA sequence. They will Transcribe and then Translate their DNA sequence. Once they have their amino acid sequence, it matches up with Letter Abbreviations. Using the chart that is provided, students will match their one-letter abbreviations to a protein and gene responsible for causing a genetic disease. Students will then research what disease is caused by that protein. In their groups they will conduct research on their disease and create a 6-10 minute lesson to teach the class. Questions to consider for their lesson are included as well as a rubric.
