DNA Structure and Protein Synthesis
Study Guide

Taking efficient notes can be a big challenge for many students, especially when working from a Powerpoint lecture. This outline gives students a means to take notes that guides them toward important concepts and avoids the pitfalls of writing word-for-word or simply not taking notes at all. The outline is written as a series of questions, fill-in-the-blanks, or diagrams.

Essential Concepts: DNA replication, DNA synthesis, double helix, purines, pyrimidines, nitrogenous bases, adenine, thymine, guanine, cytosine, complementary strands, origins of replication, DNA polymerase, codons, triplets, transcription, mRNA, translation, tRNA, ribosomes, point mutations, missense, nonsense, frameshift mutations, insertions, deletions, mutagens.

Answer Key: Available to teachers as part of the biology instructor resources subscription.
