Tri Nucleotide RepeatLesson Planet
1 min 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Mutations often lead to genetic disorders. The tri-nucleotide repeat leads to an expansion of DNA thanks to errors in the process of DNA replication. Using the informative video, scholars identify genetic disorders related to this error...
Nucleic Acids: information storageLesson Planet
9th - 11th
This sequence of slides covers each main macromolecule that is involved with human structure and function. The history of nucleotide research and the way that they are formed is summarized, a diagram accompanies the explanation. The main...
The DNA Code - The Key to Protein SynthesisLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Seven simple slides make up this DNA presenation. The first poses the question of how to code 20 amino acids with only four nitrogen bases. The following slides explain how using three-nucleotide groups leads to the formation of 64...
A Gene Is a Discrete Sequence of DNA NucleotidesLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Frederick Sanger won two Nobel prizes for protein sequencing and DNA sequencing. Young scientists learn about Dr. Sanger's research and amazing discoveries. They read an article and a biography, view videos and animations, and apply...
The Watson-Crick Model of DNA StructureLesson Planet
7th - 10th
Junior geneticists construct models of DNA to discover sequencing and pairing of nucleotides. They use the models to simulate protein synthesis and then translate the codes into physical traits. Finally, they use the traits to create a...
Genetics 101 Part 2: What are SNPs?Lesson Planet
2 mins 7th - 12th
If humans share over 99% of the same chromosomes, how are we different? There are 10 million SNPs in the human genome, accounting for most of our genetic differences. Watch this short clip to introduce your learners to SNPs, or single...
Nucleic Acids ~ Information Storage and Energy TransferLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed
This is a polished presentation of the nucleic acids. It is unique in that it examines both the genetic material and the energy molecules. Usually these are addressed separately even though they are both nucleic acids. This approach is...
Chromosomes, Chromatids, Chromatin, etc.Lesson Planet
18 mins 10th - 12th
See how the strands of DNA separate and become a template for a replica to be incorporated in a new cell! The microbiology and biochemistry of the process is detailed. This lecture refers to the concepts of transcription and translation...
From Gene to Protein ~ Transcription and TranslationLesson Planet
7th - 12th
Translate the process of protein synthesis to your molecular biologists with this instructional activity. It consists of reading, completing a table as a summary, comprehension questions, and a modeling activity for both transcription...
