TranslationLab will allow you to study the importance of the nucleotide sequence of mRNA as the fundamental basis for the genetic code universally deciphered by living cells. You will produce sequences of ribonucleotides that will be translated into protein to simulate the landmark experiments involving cell-free extracts that were essential for interpreting and understanding the genetic code.
This lab is intended for use with specific questions or assignments. Your instructor may have provided separate assignments for you; if not, you should go to the Assignments provided here.
