Explore how a protein is made from an mRNA sequence. In translation, the mRNA leaves the nucleus and attaches to a ribosome. Transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules bring amino acids to the ribosome. The tRNA pairs up with the mRNA nucleotide sequence in a specific complementary manner, ensuring the correct amino acid sequence in the protein.
The primary aim of the lab is:
1) To learn about DNA, ribosomes and amino acids
