Protein Synthesis: Transcription and Translation linklist

There are many decent Flash animations and the like on the internet, but the majority cannot be embedded. Below this YouTube video, there are some direct links to resources, some of which can be easily saved.

Learn.Genetics @ Utah

Transcribe and Translate (good, basic, interactive)

How do fireflies glow? (puts it in context)

University of Nebraska:

Protein Synthesis overview (Good enough for SL)

Transcription Details (fits DP Bio HL very well)

Translation Details (fits DP Bio HL very well)

John Kyrk: (visit the parent site at www.johnkyrk.com – excellent)

Transcription (fits DP Bio HL very well)

Translation (fits DP Bio HL very well)

St. Olaf College

Transcription (clear and simple)

Translation (clear and simple)

WH Freeman

RNA Splicing tutorial (HL only)

Bio3400

Translation with a genetic code dictionary (shows position in the ribosome)

Some more in-depth animations (newly added):

Translation from Wiley Interscience

Translation from LSU Medschool

Translation from The Chinese University in Hong Kong

Protein targeting from Rockefeller University

  1. These are all pretty simple. Have you seen anything that goes into the biochemistry of the peptidyl transferase reaction of translation?

  2. Hi Chad, this linklist is really intended for the IB Biology course, so doesn’t go into the detail of each enzyme. If you do a Google search for ‘peptidyl transferase swf’, you’ll get a few more animations: http://www.google.co.id/search?q=peptidyl+transferase+swf&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    This one might help:
