Unformatted text preview: 1. mRNA binds to ribosome 2. The codons of the RNA sequence are “read” 3. Then transfer RNA goes out and finds the amino acids coded for in messenger RNA 4. tRNA the amino acids together, binding them together in order to create protein coded for 5. ribosomes read the mRNA, tRNA gets the amino acids and builds the chain coded for DNA Mutation: mutations are alternations in the genetic code that are source of new variety two kinds: chromosomal mutations and point mutations mutations that happen in meiosis are capable of being passed down to offspring if the mutation occurs at the nucleotide base (point mutation), it may or may not affect the function. ex. sickle cell disease...
