Like to say that your website is a wonderful source for teachers and I thank you. I was wondering if the link to Essential Biology 7.3 Transcription & 7.4 Translation will be functioning anytime soon. I would like to take a look at it. Much appreciate it. Love your website.
Thanks Momo – it’s updated and uploaded now.
Will the link to Essential Biology HL be back somethime soon?
Great work again…….thanks…….Lawrence
I am biology HL student, it was great fun understanding the concept of Central dogma of life processes via this videos and post. thanks
Stephen, thank you so much for this wonderful site. I really appreciate your willingness to share. All of the materials are fabulous. One question about the Essential Biology packet for 7.3 Transcription and 7.4 Translation. In questions 4 and 5 should they say transcription instead of translation?

Hi Anne – you’re right! I don’t know how that one slipped through. Will correct right now.
Thanks for letting me know.
