Central Dogma: Quiz

Today’s quiz consisted of 8 multiple choice questions and 4 short answer questions.  Students were tested on knowledge of DNA structure, Central Dogma vocabulary, and knowledge of how DNA codes for proteins (with an emphasis on understanding the major types of DNA mutations and associated consequences to amino acid sequences).  Students were also challenged to explain how they might apply the power of genetics to solve a problem of interest to them.  After the quiz, students were assigned chromosomes in advance of tomorrow’s work on the Chromosome Project.  Tomorrow we will meet in computer lab 245.
