Protein synthesis is essential for all living organisms. Make this process easy and fun to learn with this descriptive and highly visual activity. Students assemble models to understand the roles of mRNA, tRNA, codons, anticodons, amino acids and ribosomes in the process of protein synthesis. Watch as the students quickly grasp the concept of how individual genes are translated into protein chains. A must for the biology classroom!
Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
Materials Included in Kit: Amino acid cards, set of 20, 15 MRNA strands, set of 15 Ribosome master sheet Transparent tape, matte finish TRNA cards, set of 20, 15
