Gene Expression Set
This high-quality, colourful model set provides an engaging way to teach high school and college students the structure of RNA and proteins, and the processes of transcription and translation. Students use the included DNA template to construct the corresponding mRNA.
With this mRNA, the model pieces, and the genetic code in the instructions, students then assemble the protein sequence coded for by the mRNA.
Magnets embedded in the pieces guide students in assembling the model in the correct molecular orientation. Model includes more detail than most teaching models covering the same subjects.
Step-by-step instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. The Teacher Manual and Answer Key Booklet contains a student worksheet master.
