Product Description
This activity is a creative way of helping students to better understand the process of protein synthesis (translation). Students first locate the "start" codon in a mRNA sequence and highlight it in yellow. They then rotate the color of highlighter to create a 3-letter color pattern to easily see the codons. Next, they write the matching tRNA base pairs for anticodons. Finally, they use the provided mRNA codon wheel to translate the sequence into a protein up until they reach a "stop" codon.

The activity includes eight strands to be translated and will take around 40 minutes to complete. It works great as a two-person cooperative activity.
