DNA and Polypeptide Synthesis

EasyBio > Heredity > DNA and Polypeptide Synthesis


Inquiry question: Why is polypeptide synthesis important?

Construct appropriate representations to model and compare the forms in which DNA exists in eukaryotes and prokaryotes (ACSBL076)

Model the process of polypeptide synthesis, including: (ACSBL079)

  • transcription and translation
  • assessing the importance of mRNA and tRNA in transcription and translation (ACSBL079)
  • analysing the function and importance of polypeptide synthesis (ACSBL080)
  • assessing how genes and environment affect phenotypic expression (ACSBL081)

Investigate the structure and function of proteins in living things
