Activity Description of "INSULIN from DNA"

Title INSULIN from DNA
Audience AP Biology
Abstract Given the DNA code for the horomone insulin, students will be able to determine the correct amino acid sequence of the molecule. This excersise is divided into three sections. Each section contains either the beginning, the middle, or the end of the molecule. Students will be divided up into three groups. Each group will receive one of the segments. Based on the DNA code, the group will determine what segment they received. Once they have determined their segment, they will group up with the missing two segments and complete the excersise. The groups may consist of individuals or cooperative groups of no more than three students each.
