Event description

Description

DNA codes messenger RNA, which in turn codes for proteins: this simple process lies at the center of all life on Earth. In this module, students will explore the central dogma of biology through hands-on modeling techniques. In the process, they will be introduced to the processes of replication, transcription and translation, as well as a variety of molecular techniques based on the processes.

For all the information it contains, DNA is only a molecule, far too small to see with the naked eye… or is it? In addition to learning about DNA structure, students also will extract DNA from various fruits, leaving it in a form that can be seen without the aid of a microscope. In the process, they will learn about the enormous length of the DNA molecule and its physical properties.
