Answer each question remembering to change the font color of your answers to red or blue.  Submit the completed assignment as a Word (97-2003) or .rtf document.  Remember to use your name and the assignment name for the file name.  For example:  Daffy Duck would name his file:  DuckD_TranscriptionTranslation.doc.

 

 

  1. What protein (enzyme) transcribes DNA into RNA?

 

 

2.  What are the structural differences between DNA and RNA?

 

 

 

3.  What is the RNA start codon for translation?

 

 

 

4.  The two lines below are a segment of double stranded DNA.  First transcribe the DNA into RNA then translate it into a protein.  Remember the differences between DNA and RNA when transcribing.  Use your codon table for the translation.  Pay attention to where to start translation.
