3.5 Transcription and Translation
Start at the Learn.Genetics Firefly overview.
Core (for everyone):
More Animations & Resources:
Learn.Genetics @ Utah
Transcribe and Translate(good, basic, interactive)
How do fireflies glow? (puts it in context)
University of Nebraska:
St. Olaf College
Transcription (clear and simple)
Translation (clear and simple)
A bit of fun
- Race to transcribe and translate this gene
- Learn about the four levels of protein structure here
- Have a go at real science & tech in action – Foldit!
Additional Higher Level: jump to the AHL page
Here are two cool (and accurate) animations from WEHI TV:
And now for some Protein Synthesis in action:

I guess I’ll thank you here, even though I’ve been using many other pages as well.
I’m sorry but im still a little confused about mRNA and tRNA….How do you do distinguish between them?
Thank you 🙂
tRNA comes in more detail in the HL bit, and I made a table to compare tRNA and mRNA: http://wp.me/P7lr1-A5. Click on that page to find out more.
I love your Essential Biology packets, but I can’t seem to make any of the links to SlideShare work recently…. The only way I can download them now is to click on “share” and email the SlideShare link to myself. Not sure if it a glitch in the code on your site or a user error on my part. 🙂
Thanks again for posting such amazing resources!
You’re right – the ‘view on SlideShare’ button doesn’t appear to be working. I’ll send them a problem report. For now, you can get them all from here: http://www.slideshare.net/gurustip
Thanks for the message,
Really like this site. Good job!
