Module 15: Genetic Code

Overview

This will be a set of models that exhibit evolution of populations and show an illustrative molecular basis of evolution. Students can explore classical Mendelian genetics, coupled with an introduction to the role of DNA in protein structure and function. The connection from the genetic code DNA to the function of proteins and the manifestation of specific traits, and its migration within populations are introduced in this set of interactive modeling activities.

Activities

Standards

AAAS

THE LIVING ENVIROMENT:CELLS - the genetic information encoded in DNAA molecules provides instructions for assembling protein molecules.

THE LIVING ENVIRONMENT: HEREDITY - Genes are segments of DNA molecules.

NSES

Life Science: Heredity Molecular Basis - In all organisms,m the instructions for specifying the characrristics of the organism are carried in DNA.

Life Science: Heredity Molecular Basis - Most of the cells in a human contain two copies of each of 22 different chromosomes.

Life SCience: The Cell - Cells store and use informaion to guide their functions.
