In this lesson, students will explore how gene mutations that are located on chromosomes result in harmful effects.
- Students will describe how a translation mutation can result in a genetic disease.
- Students will describe how the substitution of one nucleic acid sequence results in the production of a faulty protein.
- amino acid
- sickle-cell anemia
About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will explore how gene mutations located on chromosomes result in harmful effects.
As a result, students will:
- Run a simulation that demonstrates each step: nucleic acid substitution, amino acid substitution, protein shape, genetic disease.
