The Central Dogma (#6 of 6): Mutation

Unit 3: 4) DNA & RNA ("Instructions for Life")
Lesson 9 of 10

Objective: 1) All cells contain genetic information in the form of DNA molecules. Genes are regions in the DNA that contain the instructions that code for the formation of proteins, which carry out most of the work of cells. (HS-LS1-1 & HS-LS3-1) 2) Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells. (HS-LS1-1)

Big Idea: Changes to the DNA code (mutation) have the potential to produce an alternate form of the original protein chain.
