Today we began our understanding of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid).
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed reading about the structure of DNA and how replication works. Join me in HomeBase to read the book OR you can WATCH THIS and get some background tonight. COPY THE NOTES from today too for p. 82 of your notebook.
Tomorrow we build a construction paper model of DNA using our personalized initials... fun stuff!
Friday we will start to explore the code of DNA and what happens when mistakes occur (yep... even DNA has mistakes!).
One of my favorite websites is Learn Genetics... try the DNA game from today! (you need adobe flash)
Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... sorry for the poor citation example I am setting...
