Life Processes
  This simulation visualizes the process of diffusion accross a semipermeable membrane and helps to explore the role of this phenomenon in body functioning.
Stimulate a neuron and monitor what happens. Pause, rewind, and move forward in time in order to observe the ions as they move across the neuron membrane.  
Explore the role of pore size in the diffusion of a substance across a membrane. Diffusion is the process of a substance spreading out from its origin. Molecules diffuse through random molecular motion.
Explore how changing the DNA sequence can change the amino acid sequence of a protein. Proteins are composed of long strings of amino acids. Proteins are coded for in the DNA. DNA is composed of four different types of nucleotides.
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.
Explore how an mRNA copy is made of DNA. Protein complexes separate the DNA helix to allow complementary mRNA nucleotides to bind to the DNA sequence. The pairing of nucleotides is very specific. The primary aim of the lab is: 1) To learn about DNA and nucleotides  
Explore how the code embedded in DNA is translated into a protein. The process of converting the information in DNA into protein is a two-step process, involving transcription and translation. In transcription, an mRNA copy is made of the DNA.
