BIOL 200 Assignment: The Central Dogma of Molecular Biology –Decoding DNA Messages The Central Dogma explains how biological information flows in one direction - from DNA to mRNA to protein. The information in DNA is transcribed to the complementary mRNA sequence which is then translated to protein by ribosomes using the complementary anticodons of tRNA to position amino acids into a specific sequence. Practice determining the complementary mRNA sequences to build a protein with a message in its sequence of amino acids. Then work in reverse to write the DNA sequence that transcribes and translates to your name. Directions: 1. The number written on the top right of the assignment sheet tells you the number of the message you will decode. 2. Decode the message in the sequence by first transcribing the DNA template strand to complementary mRNA . Look up the corresponding amino acid on the codon chart below. 3. On the attached assignment sheet, record the number of the DNA template strand you worked with, the DNA template strand sequence, complementary mRNA sequence, and corresponding amino acid sequence using their one-letter symbol.
