Protein Synthesis

In order to build the human body, information coded within our DNA is converted into protein molecules. Protein Synthesis uncovers the mystery of Cancer, Mutations and Types of RNA by identifying, examining and predicting processes within our bodies. The cells in our bodies communicate messages by Transcription and Translation through Codons, our genetic code and develop processes that respond to communication. This introduction to Protein Synthesis will develop skill and techniques that apply to multiple specializations within the Biology unit. ​
