DNA transcription and translation

The resource is a Powerpoint presentation that gives a detailed overview of how proteins are synthesised by the processes of DNA transcription and translation. It also includes some concept (thought) questions that could be used in lectures to provoke a discussion with the class. It also has a quiz that could be used to evaluate whether learning outcomes were acheived at the end of the lecture.

The slides were created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi as part of a first year undergraduate course in the biosciences. The source file can be adapted for educational and non-commercial purposes only as licensed under the Creative Commons licence.
