This animation of transcription and translation combined with a molecular dynamics simulation shows the whole process of protein synthesis from genetic code to protein structure formation. This is a core model available for exploration. It does not have any activity scaffolding.
Students will be able to explore transcription and translation.
The DNA code contains information for the creation of proteins.
